How Do I Prepare for the First Day of School?

  • Bell Schedule:  Review the Bell Schedule….The first period begins at 7:25 a.m., so leave your home in plenty of time

  • Items to Bring: Chromebook, paper, and a pen/pencil

  • Lunch:  Consider packing your lunch and snacks (just in case lines are long).  If parents would like to apply for free or reduced lunch use the following LINK.  If you need to put money on your child’s account, use the following LINK.  

  • Bus Riders:  If you are riding the bus, download the Here Comes the Bus app and check your bus schedule HERE!

  • Carpool: Parents, please bring your patience tomorrow morning and afternoon as we navigate cars through the carpool. Remember, student safety is our top priority. 

  • Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors:  Update and charge Chromebooks Prior to the First Day of School. If an update is needed, the screen will show Immediate Update Required.
