  • Per Dr. Downs, a mask must be worn in the building when social distancing is not possible. Please make sure to bring one with you.
  • Time slots are divided so students will be in groups of 20. Feel free to coordinate your time slot with friends or neighbors.
  • Students will receive their schedule, locker, and bus information during check-in.
  • We prefer you prepay for your locker and agenda on My Payments Plus, however, the website is in the process of updating at this time. We will send you an email when this update is complete. We will also be accepting cash or check payments when you check in.
  • Due to the limited amount of time allotted for each group, please do not plan on bringing school supplies or items to decorate your locker. Your time will be used to practice opening the lock and becoming familiar with its location.
  • Agendas will be distributed on the first day of school.
