This is the only place we have supervision for athletes/activities. Even if there is a home MS game starting at 4…students that are watching must leave campus! Students will be held to the discipline matrix if they are caught here on campus and are not supposed to be here or in an area they are not supposed to be in.
  • Many students were able to utilize Monday November 20th schedule to catch up on school work, scholarships, online courses, projects, etc. It was a great success for several students! The next activity time for students will be on December 15th after 8th period for about an hour. Students are encouraged to utilize office hours. Students with Cs or better will be able to participate in activity time. All students are able to receive extra help and support from teachers during that time.
