    Senior Credit Checks were Aug 4th and 5th through English.

    If you are going to need a counselor recommendation please complete this form and give it to your counselor at least two weeks prior to needing the letter of recommendation. Please note that the counselors are not working weekends nor during breaks so plan accordingly! Please be respectful of teacher timelines as well for all recommendation letters. You may need to send an official transcript to the college you are applying to... to do this you must go to Parchment.com and register. You will have 4 free submissions with Parchment.

    Tutoring schedules are posted on this website under the Tutoring Folder-- please check with your content teacher for their tutor times after school.  It is highly advised to begin tutoring now for classes you know you will struggle in and have high attendance so you don't get behind.
