WHAT IS MY CHILD’S SCHEDULE?  

All students will receive their class schedule on their first day of school.  All students begin their first day in advisory class – see below for your child’s advisory teacher and room number. 

STUDENT DAILY SCHEDULE:  Students will have a daily schedule from 8:20 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Doors open for breakfast at 8:00 a.m.  Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria.  Students not eating breakfast are expected to report directly to their lockers and then to their homeroom classrooms.  Hallway wandering is not permitted.

LOCKERS

Lockers will be assigned the first week of school.

TECHNOLOGY FOR STUDENTS:

We will be able to provide each student with a Chromebook for use while at school.  Details on distribution and use will be coming soon.

WHEN DO STUDENTS RETURN? The calendar for student return is:

Monday, Sep. 5 –  No School – Labor Day

Tuesday, Sep. 6 –  No School – Teacher Work Day

Wednesday, Sep. 7 –  Only 6th grade students

Thursday, Sep. 8 –  Only 7th grade students

Friday, Sep. 9 –  Only 8th grade students

Monday, Sep. 12 –  All grade levels attend 

PLEASE PRACTICE ROUTINES!

Students should now be practicing the bedtime and wake up routines they will have when school begins so that their bodies and minds are accustomed to this when it is time to begin learning!  THANK YOU, families, for your assistance with this.

PE UNIFORMS

Every student is required to have a PE uniform.  These are available for purchase in the main office.  The cost is $15 for 1 set (shirt and shorts).  If you need a single item, the cost is $8.00 for a single shirt or 1 pair of shorts. 

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT will take place the evening of Thursday, September 15th, from 6:00-7:30 PM. This will be an open house format where families will have the opportunity to visit all classrooms and teachers.

LATE START EVERY WEDNESDAY STARTING SEPTEMBER 14

Beginning the second week of school, every Wednesday,  the school day begins one hour later than the rest of the week, at 9:40am instead of 8:20am.  On Wednesdays, all buses pick up students one hour later than their regular time.

-PLEASE NOTE THAT SEP. 7 (6th Grade Only Day) IS NOT LATE START.
