SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS! ****************************************

End of Instruction state testing begins Monday, April 13th and will continue through Monday, May 11th. Students in English 3, Geometry, US History, Biology, Algebra 2, Algebra 1, and English 2 will be given a ticket with the date, time and computer lab location of their tests.  Morning tests will run from 7:35am to 11:35am and Afternoon tests will run from 11:45am-2:35pm.  Please check with your student for times and dates they will test so as to avoid conflicts with medical, dental, ortho and other appointments that may need to be rescheduled around testing.  Also lunch times may be different for students that test on those days.  

Beginning 4/13/15 - students will no longer be able to charge a meal in the cafeteria.  All negative balances need to be paid as soon as possible.  Alternate meals for those with a negative balance will be available.
