Attention Students: Chromebook Reminders
You should all be bringing a charged device to school each day.  Please do not expect teachers to supply a charger for you.
Chromebooks should not be used during lunch.  They should be stored in lockers away from liquids and food.
It is our expectation that cases remain on the Chromebook at all times, especially for identification purposes.


All students competing in the Tallahassee, Jacksonville and Volusia County World Language competitions please see Mrs. Santiago during lunch today.

The National Junior Honor Society is participating in the annual Campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every nine minutes someone dies from it. Together we can raise some money to help scientists find a cure for this type of cancer.   All you have to do is donate any amount of money to the collection box in your first period class.  If we reach our goal of $1 per every person at the school, the first period class that collects the most money will receive a lunch from Olive Garden!  Thanks for your generosity!

Students: due to repairs to the light poles around the football and baseball fields, the only field access for the outdoor sports complex during or after school is through the gate at the east end of the faculty parking lot.  If you are attending practices or workouts, all parking must be in the student parking lot in front of the gym.  Foot access to the fields is via the road behind the gym to the lacrosse fields. Do not climb the fence to walk through the football field – the area is restricted for safety reasons due to the removal of existing light poles and installation of new ones.

Health Smart Campaign

Today’s Health Smart Reminder: Having a snack between meals prevents you from becoming so hungry that you reach for unhealthy junk food. A healthy snack keeps hunger at bay and allows you to stick to a moderate amount of food when you do eat your next meal. Choose snacks such as string cheese and fruit or peanut butter on whole grain crackers; these items are low in calories but will satisfy hunger.


Students: Just a reminder during lunch, designated areas are between the bridge and K-wing.  Students should not be in any other area unless there is a prearranged meeting with a teacher.
