This year, some 8th grade students take Integrated Literacy for a trimester in lieu of PE, team support, and/or choir due to their participation in world language and either band or orchestra. Because of the difficulty in accurately determining a grade for PE and choir at this time, these students will receive a Pass/Fail* grade, rather than a letter grade, for the quarter in which they either enter or exit PE or choir. *A Pass/Fail grade does not impact a student’s GPA.
Student BYOD Wi-Fi is now active. You must sign up online here, print out the parent permission form on the last page, and turn it into the main office prior to receiving access.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our number one priority. To help prevent activities that could negatively impact our schools, we have worked many years with Security Voice, Safe Schools Helpline, an outside company, with no ties to our schools. This is an anonymous helpline that you can use to let us know about and try to prevent problems before they occur. We have added a new "Safe Schools Helpline" button (white with red letters) on the main page of the district web site and on each building's web page. Listed on the page are three ways, either phone, text or Internet, to report acts such as violence, theft, drug or alcohol use, sexual harassment, weapons, bully behavior, etc. If you are not comfortable reporting these types of incidence, or information to our staff, please consider using this secure, anonymous service. Please, if you see, read, or hear something that threatens our school safety, please say something!
