FAQs for back to school in September 2019

ASB card: ASB Cards are an important purchase for students. Purchasing an ASB card is required for any student joining a club or sport. It also allows students free entrance into home sporting events. Purchase an ASB card online during RSVP through our online purchasing system.

Bell Schedules: Attached are the bell schedules for next year for both non-block days (M, Th, F) and block schedule days (Tu/W).

Buses: Students will be mailed a card identifying their bus route prior to the start of school. The link/info will also be sent out in Enews/Email and posted on our website.

Class Schedules: The schedule viewing and change process is attached to this email. It will also be posted to our website during the summer and remain posted through the first month of school.  

Clubs: Clubs will advertise their own meeting dates/times/locations in the first few weeks of school. Listen to announcements and watch iVision for details for each club. In addition to this, we will have a Club Fair on October 23rd during Nest. Students will learn information about all of our clubs and find out how to join!

Information/News: Make sure your parents/guardians are signed up for Enews and their email addresses are correct in Skyward/Family Access. We send a lot of important information home to parent/guardian email addresses. For students, we provide news/information in the following ways:

  1. Student emails
  2. iVision student video news on Wednesday afternoons
  3. PA announcements daily
  4. Posters around campus
  5. Text reminders – to sign up, follow the instructions attached to this email

Lockers: Students can request a locker at our attendance office window just around the corner from our main office doors (where athletics, ASB and attendance windows are located). Students can come before school, during lunch, during Nest or afterschool to get a locker.  Students should first walk through their schedule to decide the best location/hallway for a locker. Once a locker is issued, the location cannot be changed.  Lockers are free, however, there is a charge for students who fail to clean out their locker at the end of the school year.

Lunches: Lunches will be based on your 4th period teacher on M, W, Th, F and based on your 5th period teacher on Tuesdays. Teachers will notify all students of their lunches on the first day of school in class. Lunches will not be available in your online schedule. 

Nest time: Nest time is time on block days (Tuesday & Wednesday). A draft calendar is also attached. Nest time is spent doing one of the following activities:

  • School wide activities (assemblies, safety drills, required surveys, etc.)
  • Non-classroom based learning (college/career planning, counseling support, social/emotional learning)
  • Choice time: time to get help from teachers, make up work from absences, complete homework to reduce HW time after school

Picture day: Picture day is Friday, September 6th. Forms will be available the first week of school.   

Sports: All students active in our system as of August 1st will be sent an email regarding fall sports participation.  Fall sports are: Cross Country (boys & girls), Diving (girls), Football (boys & girls), Golf (boys), Soccer (girls), Swimming (girls), Tennis (boys), and Volleyball (girls). Interested in participating in any of the fall sports, mark your calendars for August 1st to review all of the athletic information and start the process of fall sports registration.
