The National Junior Honor Society is providing tutoring and homework help on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school.  The sessions will end at 2:40, so make sure to arrange for your child’s transportation home.  Tuesdays the tutoring will be in Mrs. Doemel’s room and on Thursdays in Ms. Farbo’s room.  If tutoring is cancelled for any reason, an announcement will be made and teachers will be notified by email.

Forgotten items If a student has left schoolwork, a project, PE clothes, a band instrument, etc., please drop it off no later than 8:15AM.  These items will not be taken after that time.  The only exceptions would be lunch, money for lunch, glasses, or medicine.  Thank you for your help with this!
Early checkout If you need to take your student out of school early, the latest time that he/she can be picked up is at 1:20PM (12:20PM on Wednesdays).  If you come after that time, you will need to wait until dismissal at 1:50PM (12:50PM on Wednesdays) to get your student.

March 5: Last day for student portraits to be added to the yearbook.

If your student was absent for both picture days and would still like their portrait picture in the yearbook, please have them see Ms. Reichard in room 670 sometime before March 5.

April 15: Last day to purchase a yearbook unless they are sold out before.

Over 2/3 of our quantity is already sold so please do not delay in purchasing. This is a HARD deadline that cannot be changed.   This allows enough time for printing and distribution of the book before the school year ends; both are lengthy processes.


If a student is unable to attend school, upon returning, the parent/guardian must complete an online attendance form, BELOW, or submit a note within 48 hours stating the date of the absence, the specific reason for the absence, and  have the parent/guardian’s signature. Emails and phone calls are not accepted as notification of absence.
