Reminder for Students Who Drive to Campus

Now that we have more students driving to school, please remember to arrive a little earlier than usual. It is taking students longer to park and come to class because our student parking lot is now being used at a higher capacity. Students have done a great job so far, but more time in the morning will lead to fewer problems getting to class. Thank you!

For Parents
Open Enrollment

Open enrollment for new and returning students begins on March 8! A discounted rate of $700 will be applied until March 15, in which the price will increase to $750. Open enrollment will continue through June 30 (space permitting). After June 30, if we still have room for additional students, the enrollment fee will increase to $1,000.
Parent/Teacher Conferences

This is a friendly reminder that Thursday and Friday, March 11 and 12 are 1:00 pm releases for all students due to Parent/Teacher Conferences. Teachers will be requesting specific conferences with parents of students who are performing below an average level. They will also offer availability to others as their schedule allows. Please watch for emails from teachers for conference invites!  

Additionally, teachers are going to make time for students who need extra assistance this week so they can have a strong start to the second quarter. Stay tuned for requests from teachers to meet with students right after school to help them on a better path as we approach the end of the quarter.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your child's teacher directly.
