    Calling All Band Alumni!

We also encourage students to call parents from the office to inform them of the different drop off schedule for bus transportation so that an adult may be available for the transport from the bus stop to home.

    Please be alert to those weather forecasts for incoming snow possibilities. If you wish your student to be dismissed at a different time, you must send in a note with your student for each dismissal. No emails and no phone calls will be accepted. Notes must be turned in before homeroom, on the day they are to be applied. You may not submit one note for the duration of the school year. A note must be delivered on each separate occasion.

  • Fall PSAT Testing

    Each Fall, the Sophomores and Juniors are required to take the PSAT Test, which is the pre-cursor to the SAT. Due to the large percentage of our students that take the SAT during their Junior and/or Senior years, we feel as though the more exposure and practice our students have to the test the greater chance of success when their PSAT scores count toward scholarship consideration, as well as on the SAT when considered by colleges and universities. This year, the test will be administered on Oct. 11, 2017, and there is a $16 fee required to take the test.
