GENERAL INFORMATION:

Yearbook sales are in full effect!  If you have not pre-ordered a 2019-2020 yearbook, you will definitely want to do so soon.  Yearbooks can be purchased in the Commons at the book store and online for $45 if prepaid by March 6.  After the 6th, the cost increases to $55 and the extra yearbooks are very limited.  You don't want to miss out on this memory keepsake!    

Everyone should feel safe and comfortable at school regardless of:
