Attention Parents

SCHEDULE CHANGES: All Students
"The schedule you ended school with in May is the schedule you will start school with in August."  This was advertised over and over again last year.  However, there are always some limited exceptions.  Here are the exceptions:

1.  I failed a class that I still need to get made up.

2.  I am a senior who needs a course in order to meet graduation requirements.

3.  I am in enrolled in a class that I am not eligible for, such as an AP Class.

4.  I have an open period in my schedule or an error in my schedule.

5.  I signed up for a study hall thinking I would be a teacher's aide.

If you can answer "yes" to one or more of the 5 above exceptions, then come to the Guidance Office and schedule an appointment for the period in which you have an issue.  We will call you down to the office that period.
