Q: What materials does my student, especially freshmen, need for the first day of school?
A: To be fully prepared for Day 1 of the school year, students will need to bring their Chromebook. Freshmen students will receive their Chromebook at School Readiness Days. Students should also bring a copy of their schedule (or have it on their phone) and they should know what bus route number they will ride for transportation to and from school.
Q: If a student cannot make the assigned School Readiness Days time, then what is our process?
A: We schedule students to specific days to provide a decent flow and number of students during each time. If a student needs to come at a different time, please know that students are welcome at any time during the open hours of 8am - 11am on each day. If you are out of town and cannot attend any of the Readiness Days, you will need to go to your class house on the first day of school to complete the process.
