Back to School Information

Welcome back to school!

This web page is designed to assist all new and returning students with preparing for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. Here are some quick notes:

  • The first day of school for the Class of 2022 will be Tuesday, August 28, followed by Freshman Retreat Day on August 29. Both days run from 7:55 AM – 2:38 PM
  • Sophomores and Juniors Report from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM for Orientation and Photos on August 29.

  • Seniors need to have their school photos taken during their free periods on August 30.

In early August, each family should have received their official “Back-to-School” mailing. Within that mailing were the printed school calendar, several letters, memos and documents that are also available for your review on this Back-to-School website. That said, the mailing did not include all the items listed on this page, so please review this page thoroughly and please remember to access the link and read the Student Handbook prior to the first day.

Enjoy your remaining days! We are ready to greet you during the week of August 27!

2018-19 Student Handbook

Please remember to sign the student handbook signature card which was mailed home in August and return the card on the first day of school.
