HS Weekly Update 12/13/21

High School Students and Families,

It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of school for 2021, and we have made it through half of the school year! Schedule change requests for second semester are due by Friday, December 17. Our team will work over the break to make any necessary changes. Students can check PowerSchool for their second semester schedules if needed. We will also distribute copies first thing on Tuesday, January 4.
