Good afternoon Bobcats!

We welcomed our staff back this morning and they are so excited to see you all tomorrow at Open House and Thursday for the first day of school. Please see the information below, and as always, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!



If your student needs to take prescription medication during school hours, please review, complete, and sign this form that lets us know all the specific information.  We will also need the medication in a labeled prescription bottle in order to dispense.

School Hours Reminder:

High School begins promptly at 8:30 am. Drop-off begins at 8:00 am. The school day ends at 3:30 pm. If your student is not picked up by 4:00 pm, they will be sent to the afterschool program and you will be charged a daily rate for that day. We do not have a before-school program. There are no exceptions.

****We have lots of returning families so follow their lead. Please be patient for the first few weeks of school. The lines get better as families learn the procedures.****

Drop Off Procedures

All students should enter through the rear of the building, through the gym doors. Classes begin at 8:30am, students will remain in the gym from 8:00 – 8:20am. See the image below for a map of the car line.

Pick Up For Student Drivers:

Exit the building through the gym doors.  Look carefully before heading across the street as there will be additional vehicle traffic from students being picked up. Exit the student parking lot at the lower entrance, across from the soccer field, where you typically enter in the morning.

Pick Up For Parents Picking Up Students:

  • Cars will enter the carline through the first entrance to the right off the main driveway

  • Cars will double lane around the bottom of the front circle

  • Cars will continue the double lane along the front of the school

  • Cars will turn right at the end of the sidewalk and continue to double lane along the side of the building

  • A staff member will be asking for the name(s) of the students you are picking up and radio into the gym for those students.

  • After giving the name(s) of the students you are picking up, cars will alternate from each lane to merge into a single lane along the back of the high school gym.

  • Students will exit the gym to find their ride.

  • Once you have your student(s) please carefully pull out to the left around cars who may still be waiting for their student(s) so that other cars can continue to pull up

  • Exit the parking lot at the top of the lot, next to the dumpster corral.


Students will receive their official schedule on the first day of school in their homeroom (advisory/CATS) on colored paper. All students need to follow their assigned schedule, even if they are hoping to make a change to that schedule.

All students may now see their schedule in PowerSchool. Please login and check. If you are requesting a change you must complete the schedule change request form.

The daily bell schedule can be found here Daily Bell Schedule.
