Announcements | December 13th





All students need to log into their student portals before Dec 13 to check their semester 2 schedules. It is under “My Schedule” on the left-hand side menu. The school will NOT be printing semester 2 schedules, so students will have the option to print from home or write down their schedule/room numbers so they know where to go when they return in January. If there is an error on the schedule and a change must be made, they need to see their counselor by Monday, Dec 16. If they do not have internet access at home, they can log in before/after school or during lunch in the library. If students do not know how to access their student portal, they should stop in the counseling office.
