Students will receive new classes for Quarter 2 which will start on Monday, November 2, 2020. At that time, students will have to enroll in the new Google Classrooms for Periods 4, 5 and 6. Google Classroom codes will be shared before November 2, 2020.

We also ask our families to please monitor attendance in PowerSchool through the Parent Portal. Students are expected to attend Periods 1, 2 and 3. In order to receive attendance credit, students need to log into their teacher’s Google Classroom, attend online classes and complete their work. It is important to maintain communication with our office or our teachers if students are unable to attend classes. Please email Mrs. Marsha McNeil at [email protected] for Parent Portal PowerSchool information.

Our next parent coffee will be on Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 6 p.m. via Zoom. We invite you to stop by and meet our new Head Counselor I, Mrs. Jessica Sanchez.
