Welcome back Cougars!

In spite of recent challenges, our staff is eager to welcome each and every one of you back to campus for the 22-23 school year. We are ready to provide an exceptional experience for our students and families. Our goals this year are three-fold:

  • To re-establish our sense of community as a school. In simple terms, community means pride & belonging for our students and staff
  • To set and maintain high expectations for all of our students, both academically and interpersonally
  • To move towards an equitable grading system that is more accurate and easier to understand

First Week: We kick off the year with a 3 day school week that will consist of a Freshman Only Day - Wednesday, Sept 7th, ALL students return on Thursday, Sept 8th and we will close the week Friday, Sept 9th with a special Class Meeting bell schedule. View a copy of our First Week Schedule Here.

Daily Bell Schedule Time Change: As a reminder, this year the school day will begin at 8:45am every day of the week, and end at 3:45pm M/T/Th/F. On Wednesdays, the school day will end at 2:15pm. Doors will open for student entry at 8:15am. View a coy of the Daily Bell Schedule Here.

For these first days, students should bring:

  1. Yourself - come rested, excited and ready to connect with the Cougar Community
  2. School iPad - charged and ready to access your student schedule (via StudentVUE or Canvas)
  3. Best Smile - you will get your student portrait photo as part of your first day
  4. Bus Number - if you registered for bus transportation, be sure to use the Bus Lookup Tool BEFORE school tomorrow so you know your route number home
