  • PROHIBITED METAL OBJECTS REMINDER - As middle and high school students return from Fall Break in mid-October, they will be prohibited from bringing to school stainless steel water bottles, metal eating utensils, and scissors. As we increase school safety measures and the frequency of Weapons Detection, these objects delay the screening process and will no longer be allowed. We do apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and appreciate your cooperation.

Our Flags Today

  • Our flags fly at half-staff upon the death of principal figures as a mark of respect for their memory as ordered by the President and/or Governor. Click here for more information on our flag status today. In many instances, students are responsible for participating in or conducting flag-related exercises. While a great responsibility and honor for our students, we believe that it also helps build a sense of patriotism and civic pride.
