OPEN LIBRARY NIGHT is back! As the semester is coming to an end, we want to offer some evening sessions for students to get the extra support that they may need to end the semester strong. We will have Math, English, Social Studies, and science teachers available each evening to help students get caught up, study, or just support. The Library will be open from 6:00pm-8:00pm on May 22, and May 25. Students must bring their ID and are required to stay the entire time unless a parent picks them up from the library. If you have any questions please reach out to Kanika Mapp at [email protected].

EARLY RELEASE DURING FINALS WEEK
If you know your student will require an early release during Finals (5/30, 5/31, 6/1), please email the Attendance Office at [email protected] in advance. Remember that it is district policy not to release students during the last 15 minutes of class or when there are less than 30 minutes left in the school day.
Your student(s) will need to pick up their release pass before class - no passes will be delivered during finals- so there is no disruption or distraction to the class. The Attendance Office Staff appreciates your support and understanding.
