Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! We are looking forward to having a great year. If you have questions about the schedule itself, then please call or email your child’s counselor. The attached schedule will provide information about when the counselors will return and when schedule changes can be made.
The spirit shop will reopen on Sunday, August 3 during New Family Orientation and will remain open with extended hours from August 4 - August 8. Times will be posted by mid July.

During orientation, students will receive their yearbook and information on downloading the BlueBook student handbook and directory app. (Freshmen do not receive a 2013-2014 yearbook.) Pictures will be taken at each orientation. Pictures for freshmen will be taken on Monday.
DRESS FOR ORIENTATION:
While students may wear their school uniforms to orientation, they are not required to do so. However, all students are expected to adhere to the following guidelines:
Boys: Sport shirt and dress pants. No jeans, T-shirts, shorts or sweatpants. Boys must be clean-shaven.
Girls: Christian modesty is the expectation, and skirts must be of an appropriate length. No jeans, T-shirts, sweatpants or shorts. Shoulders need to be covered.
You may use “Meal Time” accounts to place money into the system or students may pay cash for meals. You need your student’s ID number to use "Meal Time;" that number is the same as the ID for Power School. If you prefer, you may send a check to the school to be deposited into your account. Your student will receive his/her 4-digit pin number to use at the cafeteria register on the schedule distributed during orientation.
Locker numbers and combinations will be available on the schedule distributed during orientation.
Your counselor will be in his or her office to change schedules with missing classes or class conflicts (defined as two desired classes meeting the same period) according to the schedule listed below. These two situations are our immediate concern as we need everyone in a class when school begins on Friday, August 8. Please know that we want every student to succeed and believe that our entire faculty strives for that same result. Therefore, we will not change a schedule because of teacher preference.
