As you know this week is final exam week. The weather looks like it could be a little problematic on Thursday with a 50/50 chance of snow. If school should happen to be canceled that day we will move those exams (periods 2 & 3) to Wednesday, January 22nd. That day would become an early release day for the high school only with buses picking up the students at 11:30. The start of second semester will be moved to Thursday, January 23rd. We will announce to students that they should bring home all materials that they will need for all their exams. This will give them all day Thursday, should there be a snow day, to study for their periods 4 and 5 exams which are scheduled for Friday. We are all hoping that the weather does not impact our ability to hold finals on the day that they are scheduled.

Thank you to all who responded to the communication survey that was sent out a little over a month ago. We are in the process of reviewing your feedback and will gladly make changes where we can. As always we try very hard to reach out to you with up to date information but we understand that the avenues we are using to get those messages out is not working for everyone.

The registration process will begin shortly for the 2020-2021 school year. The upperclassmen will receive their course registration forms the week of February 10th and they are to turn them in, completed, to the guidance office no later than February 28th. If you have any questions regarding the courses that your son or daughter has selected please do not hesitate to reach out to their school counselor. You can call the guidance office directly at 465-4989.

Looking ahead to March we will be holding Parent/Teacher conferences on March 11th from 5:00-8:00 and March 12th from 3:00-6:30. You will be able to sign up for conferences by accessing the link that will be available on the guidance website as well as the homepage for the high school. As we get closer to the actual conferences I will use the all call system to let you know that the site is open to sign up for conferences. If you run into problems setting up conferences you may call the guidance office and they will be happy to help you.

Enjoy the week
