2020-2021 Schedule Availability

We realize schedules are not viewable in Home Access. Schedules ARE NOT FINAL . We have been continuing to make changes as we finalize and balance courses. Schedules will be available in the student’s Home Access account very soon for families that have finished registration and residency and have submitted the required health records for 12 th and 9 th grade students. Once your schedule becomes available, if you want to make a change, you MUST submit a schedule change request at . Please do not contact your counselor directly, as this may delay the change and your ability to get a different course. We have counselors on duty Tuesday-Thursday the remainder of the summer that will process these change requests. Changes are made on a space available basis only and some changes will not be possible. We do not make changes for lunch or teacher requests.

Summer Reading 2020

Need a break from Netflix? Rediscover your love of reading this summer with the perfect social-isolation activity: binge-reading. Your teachers have hand-selected for you a list of 40 books that will help you escape, make you laugh, or cry, or think. The lists are divided into book lists for each grade level, but feel free to choose any book on any list that you finding interesting.  And once you finish one book, you’ll probably want to go back to the list to find another title. You can find the book lists (and links to book trailer videos) here and descriptions of all the books in a slide deck here
Summer Math Packets

In order to ensure that students are fully prepared for math class in fall with all of the essential prerequisite skills, we have prepared summer math packets to keep skills fresh over the summer. To access these packets, CLICK HERE , and download the packet that corresponds to the math class students are taking next year. Once students work through the problems, they can check their answers using the solutions we posted there as well. Tutorial links are provided if students struggle with particular skills.
