  • It’s time to start thinking about NEXT year’s classes!  Course Request Forms are DUE this FRIDAY.  So talk it over with your family, get it signed, and get it turned in.  Remember — these decisions MATTER!  If you don’t pick your classes, someone ELSE will pick them for you. See your class counselor with any questions.

  • Calling all athletes!! If you are participating in Winter or Spring sports — LISTEN UP!!  Wrestlers attending the County Meet — your Blue Emergency card is DUE on THURSDAY by 10am; Swimmers and divers — your Blue Emergency card is DUE on MONDAY, February 26th by lunch; and anyone trying out for Track and Field — the interest meeting is scheduled for TUESDAY, February 27th in the gym after school, and your physicals are due by Friday, March 8th.  See Ms. Hogwood with any questions.

  • And now for a “wellness tip” from our school clinic!  It’s cold, flu, and covid season again — so here are three simple strategies for keeping our shared environment HEALTHY and SAFE!  First — WASH YOUR HANDS!!  Second — Fully cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.  And third — if you’re not feeling well, please STAY HOME.  Together, we can stop these germs and viruses BEFORE they spread.  See our school nurse with any questions.
    .
  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch.  Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a bus pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus!  See Ms. Lavin in the office with any questions.
