A: At the end of the school day, dismissal is announced with a bell at 2:30. An administrator will hold the buses at the bus loop until all students have gotten on their correct bus.
Q: I'm moving. How do I withdraw my student?
A: You will need to fill out a formal withdraw form. These forms can be also be found in the Counseling Department and will need to be signed by the following: library, clinic, and all current teachers. This formal withdrawal process is important to complete because without a formal withdrawal, the student will be unable to enroll in another school.
If possible, forms should be obtained at least 2 days before the students last day, so they are able to take the form to teachers for signature on both their A and B days (teacher signatures are not needed if form is for withdrawing after the last day of school).
Q: Are parents able to schedule a meeting with the counselor regarding their student?
A: Parents may call the counseling assistant during office hours and he will be happy to set up a time to meet with the appropriate counselor. Setting an appointment time ensures that our counselors are in the office for your visit and have enough time to address your questions and concerns.
