Wednesday, August 30, 2017, F-DAY


Freshmen, there are still several spots open, so if you are interested in being a lean-to leader on the camping trip please get in touch with Randy Howe in Student Services or send him an email. You can find his address on the front side of your packing list. And upper classmen, if you do not receive an email invitation by the end of the school day to help chaperone the trip it means you were not chosen this year. There were a lot of applicants so if you are till only a junior or sophomore, please apply again next year.


For PAC/print only:

If you have requested a review of your schedule for a potential change, and have not yet heard anything about the outcome, that means your schedule has not been changed. Please follow your schedule as originally written until you hear from us. Please do not come out of class for schedule questions. You may do that during G period or your lunch waves. Teachers, please reinforce this message. The following students should meet me in the main office after announcements to obtain revised schedules….


Today we move to using the standard schedule change request form which requires review and approval by any teachers involved in the change, Ms. Matos, Ms. Gratz, and the aquaculture office if an ASTE class is involved. If you have Schedule Review Requests outstanding you may still hand those in to Evelyn in the main office.
