    When school begins, your child will receive a Student Handbook explaining our school rules. Our prime concern is the safety of your child and that we provide an atmosphere that is conducive to optimal learning and teaching.


    Please assist your child in acquiring the required materials and supplies by August 31, 2023.


    Once you receive notification, please complete the necessary student information, emergency forms and invoice payment via the PowerSchool Information Registration System by August 31, 2023. Students will not be permitted to participate in their labs until all forms are completed. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation. Please contact us if there are any questions, or if you have difficulty providing the required materials and supplies.


    We are looking forward to the upcoming year and recognize the importance of home support and participation. For this purpose, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
