First Day of Classes, September 7

All classes begin on September 7. This is a full school day. Please check the bell schedule at


Check your class schedule! It’s important for all students to check their class schedules in StudentVUE the day before classes begin. Counselors are still making changes to schedules, and your schedule may continue to change through the first week of school. 


You must attend the classes on your schedule. This is an important safety step. If you are not in the right place, we might not be able to find you in an emergency. If your teacher doesn’t call your name when taking attendance, you might be in the wrong classroom. Speak up and check your schedule to make sure you’re in the right place. 


Bring your student computer, some paper, and a pen or pencil. Your teachers will provide a syllabus on the first day of class that will list any special school supplies you will need for their class. 


Reporting an Absence

  • Please inform the attendance office each day that your student is absent.  
  • Absences need to be excused within 2 business days.
