For Parents
Appearance Code

In our ongoing transitions this school year, we have an additional update as it pertains to our Appearance Code. Students in Weights and Physical Education this year have been able to dress in attire fitting for each of these classes and have been allowed to wear this clothing throughout the school day. In an attempt to return to our traditional Appearance Code, students will need to be in proper Appearance Code throughout the school day. During our current Virtual Week, students have been reminded of this change by their PE/Weights Instructors. Students will be given time to change into the attire needed for their Weights/PE class. Leggings, sweats, and other physical attire will no longer be acceptable during the course of the school day. Please remind your students of this change that begins on Monday, 3/29. We appreciate your support in this slight change.
Check Lunch Balance

Please check your student's lunch account! We have some accounts running low and want to make sure everyone has their lunch money.

Spring Sports

...they are RIGHT around the corner.

Spring practices officially begin April 3, with contests beginning April 15. 
If your child is planning to participate in a spring sport, you must complete the Athletic Clearance process ASAP. 

If they've played a sport already this year, please check RMA to be sure they are registered for their spring sport as well. You must register in RMA for each sport.
