Changes for 2016 -17

  • School Start and Finish Times are from 7:58am – 2:50pm. All students should arrive by 7:45am.
  • After 7:55 am the driveway between the Junior School and High School will be gated closed for

safety reasons.  We have more junior school students than ever crossing between the two build-

ings and as a result, the area between the two buildings will be closed to traffic between 7:55am

and 2:45 pm every day.

  • High School Semester Exams return in 2016-17. Exams will be scheduled December 14 – 16 and May 24 – 26.  Semester Grades will be weight at 40% for the first or third quarter, 40% for the

second or fourth quarter and 20% for the semester exam.  Students must pass either the second quarter OR the semester exam to receive semester credit.

  • Advisory Period is scheduled for Friday from 9:33 am – 10:13 am and will include a list of activi-

ties and special Naviance programs. 


            Have a safe, fun and enjoyable summer!
