Spring 2021 Schedules
We have started the process of adjusting our master schedule and moving students into the appropriate sections for the spring semester. Because we are scheduling in-person and virtual academy students at the same time, spring schedules will not be complete until January, as this is a massive undertaking to hand-schedule over 2600 students. Please be aware that any schedule that is viewable this fall is not accurate. We will let you know when schedules are completed and may be viewed with accuracy.
Parking Pass Distribution
Students who registered for parking passes are invited to begin picking up the passes Tuesday, November 17 and Thursday, November 19 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. There will be an additional opportunity to pick up passes from 3 to 5:30 pm Thursday November 19.
