All materials are due back to the student’s advisor by February 10, 2020. Contact your guidance counselor or advisor with registration questions.
It is our desire to create the best possible schedule for each student. When you receive your schedule, please look it over closely, making sure it is good for the entire year. If changes are needed, see your guidance counselor no later than the second week of school. Please be advised that if a student needs to withdraw from a given course after they have started that class, the withdrawal will be noted on their permanent transcript record with a WP or WF. A "WP" notes that satisfactory work was being completed in the course at the time of withdrawal. A "WF" notes failing work at the time of withdrawal. Depending when the student withdraws from a class, they will not be eligible for Honor Roll and/or Open Study hall that quarter or the following quarter.

The SAT should be taken by college-bound students in the spring of their junior year or fall of their senior year. The easiest way to register for the SAT is online at www.Collegeboard.com. Students should set up an account with College Board. This will give them access to many tools that are available to support SAT preparation and the college search. There are also helps for parents. This is a recommended site for college-bound students and their parents.

Any sophomore or junior in learning support who has not been to the guidance office to request the paperwork for SAT accommodations should do so as soon as possible. The process with the College Board can take as long as 8 to 12 weeks. Current educational testing is a requirement for the accommodation request to be approved. It is recommended that educational testing be no more than 3 years old for college services.
Students in AP classes will be receiving the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents. Please read over this bulletin, as it has information regarding the policies and procedures of all AP tests. It contains helpful information about exam day procedures, misconduct, things to bring to the exam, sending out your scores, and much more.
