Dr. Justus, Principal


Message - August 2017

Dear Parents, students, and community,
Welcome back to school! We are looking forward to a great school year. 
A couple of reminders for students:
  • Please be on time and consider traffic as you time your travel to school.
  • Please adhere to dress code. Specifically, on the first day of school, we noticed shorts that were shorter than fingertip length and holes in pants above the knee. Spaghetti straps are also not allowed.
Finally, please understand that we will not be changing schedules unless the student has already had a class that is on his/her schedule or if he/she needs a class for graduation that is not on his/her schedule. We work all summer to schedule students and hire staff based on student course selection, so we cannot change at this time of year. 
Parents, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to call. Make sure you have your parent portal login and check your student's progress routinely. If you have questions about your login or about your student's progress, please call. We will take care of you!
