Important Information about the Senior Book Return
The Senior Book Return is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15 in homeroom prior to graduation practice. All senior books should have been reviewed and accepted by their teachers.

If your graduating senior has younger siblings there is no need to keep the senior's textbooks for them. As a reminder there is a flat rate book fee of $375 minus the book credit from this year's book return. The fee will cover all textbooks for the entire year. It is extremely important that your student turn in their textbooks in order to receive a credit towards the flat rate. Senior book credits will be added to returning student's book credits for next year.
