SENIOR VACCINE FINAL DEADLINE: Please remember that the deadline for Seniors to submit documentation that they have received their Second dose of the Meningococcal booster vaccination is fast approaching. Documentation of this vaccine must be received prior to October 30th. Students who do not provide this documentation are not permitted to attend school after this date. Please email all immunizations, including the Meningococcal vaccine, to Mrs. Taylor at btaylor6@wcpss.net.

 

All students who are enrolled in AP courses this semester should log in to their AP portal online and select YES to exam if they plan to take the AP exam in May. This must be done by November 10 for fall AP classes or there will be a $40 late fee assessed. Exams are free this year, so please encourage your students to sign up before the deadline. Students are responsible for late registration fees.

 

The yearbook staff is excited to share news with you regarding our 2021 yearbook. Yes, we are having a yearbook, and we need your help to make it happen. To cover this unusual school year, we're asking parents to be a part of our yearbook staff by helping us capture what's happening in our students' lives.

 

 

What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Consider the below:

· Follow us on Social Media. We will post invites to share your pictures on various topics. Just use this link to send us photos. https://images.jostens.com/415464703

· When you see an email regarding the yearbook, open it! We're using online forms to conduct interviews and ask for specific images we need to provide coverage when we are unable to be there in person. Complete the form requesting information and pictures. Easy!

· If you or a parent you know takes pictures at student events, please let us know. We want to feature every student in various aspects of their life. Look for those moments when they are just playing with their pet, working in their virtual learning space, playing their instrument, or enjoying a family meal. Other options include students participating in sports outside of school, virtual club meetings or events, theatre performances, art projects or just candids of your kids. You get it! Send us pictures of everything so your student can be included.

This yearbook is unique in that it will be created by the whole school. Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic year. Don’t forget to reserve your copy at www.jostensyearbooks.com or call 1.877.767.5217.
