Schedule questions

Schedules are visible in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If your HS student has a schedule change request, here’s what they need to know. If students need their PowerSchool sign-in information, please contact Suzanne or Trish. 

•    Students can fill out a schedule change request form, available in the HS and Main Offices. 
•    Change request forms will be dated/timestamped, and will be reviewed in the order received starting August 20, 2019. 
•    We will not always be able to make change requests, as we need to consider section sizes.
•    If your student needs to talk to Ms. Linck with questions about scheduling, the form will include space for them to indicate they have questions, and she will be in contact with them.

We will email schedules to students about a week before school, that will have their locker information on it. Students in grades 7 and 9 will get printed copies during orientation, other students can request printed copies starting August 20, 2019.
 

7th grade

You'll fill out forms at orientation, but students won't receive their iPads until the first days of school.
