2022-2023 High School Orientation Letter

REPORT TO SEMINAR 

FIRST ON MONDAY MORNING.  At 7:30 AM, we will have a 5 minute seminar where students will be getting a NEW 1st trimester schedule. Room numbers may have changed, schedule adjustments may have happened.  Do not use the one you received at orientation. Our counselors have worked tirelessly to get everyone scheduled! 

CHECK YOUR STUDENTVUE  

It is a great idea to check studentvue regularly, not only for grades, but for changes to schedules, messages from teachers, etc...

CHECK YOUR SCHOOL EMAIL DAILY

This is an important and vital task to make a habit of.  Administrators, Counselors, and staff will send emails regularly. Don't miss out on important information.  

DRESS CODE

  • Students will not be allowed to wear hats or hoods during the school day. Students wearing hats will have them confiscated and sent to the office.
  • All printed materials on attire need to be school appropriate.
  • Students should not wear midriffs or spaghetti straps without proper covering. 

ENTERING/EXITING BUILDING

  • Students may use the main entrance (by front office), student entrance (by student parking), or bus loop to enter the building prior to 7:30 am.
  • During school hours, students may ONLY enter through the main entrance and check in with the front office.
  • Students who enter the building or let students into the building during the day will face consequences.
  • Students leaving the building during the day (other than off-site or virtual), must sign out in the front office. 

ABSENCES AND ILLNESS INCLUDING QUARANTINED STUDENTS

The high school will not be remoting or streaming students into classes this year.  Teaching students in the classroom while live streaming students at home is very convenient for students, however it is not the best educational setting for all.   For all absences including Quarantined students, teachers will be available daily for check in and communication.  Teachers will also utilize the google classroom, videos of lectures, and many other avenues to ensure students are able to keep up or catch up.
