It is hard to believe, but we are halfway through our first quarter of the school year! Please check PowerSchool for interim grades to be posted by Monday, August 30. While we will not be sending paper interim reports, we encourage you to review PowerSchool with your student(s) to ensure that they are on the right track to finish the quarter strong!

Football, Soccer (Girls), Volleyball (Girls), and Cheerleading tryouts begin Monday, August 30th at Ligon Middle School. Make sure Mr. Scheck ( has your completed physical forms before then!


  • YMCA Transportation

If there is a change in your student’s afternoon YMCA transportation for a particular day or week, please let them know ahead of time so that they are not waiting for extended periods of time during pickup.


  • Tardies

Please remember that our instructional bell rings at 7:30am. Students will receive a lunch detention for every 3rd tardy and a day of ISS for the 12th tardy in a quarter. This includes arrival to school and to each class.


  • Picture Makeup Day

Students will take their makeup pictures on Tuesday, September 14th. View the flyer with the online ordering code here


  • Cell Phone Policy

Please review the Moore Square cell phone policy with your student. Students should have all cell phones off and put away during the school day unless a teacher has given them permission to use it for academic purposes. Please support this policy by not texting or calling your student during the school day. Should they need to get in touch with you, we are happy to have them use a school phone. If you need to get a message to them before the end of the day, feel free to call the main office and we will relay it to them. Thank you for supporting us with this!
