Hello Huskies,


Friday, April 21 is a teacher workday and there is not school for students.


Students received report cards and a list of their requested courses for the upcoming year this past Monday, April 17.  Please review this list with your student and make any necessary changes.  Students should return the list to Student Services ASAP, no later than May 26, even if no changes are made.  If your child missed Husky Headquarters on Monday, they should come to the Counselors’ Corner to get their list of courses for next year.  Contact your child’s counselor with questions.


Mean Girls the Musical opens Friday the 21st! Come out and see the iconic movie brought to life on stage with one laugh out loud moment after another. This production is rated PG-13 and tickets can be purchased in advance on GoFan. With 12 tony nominations and a script by Tina Fey, this show is extremely funny and will have you smiling from ear to ear. You'll be glad you came! Hope to see you there.


All student parking spaces have been sold.  Please do not park in the student parking lot unless you have a space.


Over 700 of our students will be taking AP exams May 1 – May 12.  There is critical information  to know and tasks to complete to ensure access to exams (transportation permission forms, bus requests forms, and more!).  Learn more at our AP page here.
