Supply Lists
High school students come to school on the first day with paper and pens. School supply lists will be provided in class syllabi on the first day of school.


First Day Procedures
For secondary students, the first day of school is a 1-6 day. This means students will attend all 6 periods on this day.

High school students go to the cafeteria on the first day of school to find their first period classes listed on the cafeteria windows (in alphabetical order by last name). Students then proceed to their first period classes and receive their full schedules from their first period teachers.
