Some helpful back to school suggestions!

~bring water bottles to school so can refill at filtered water fountains!

~dress in layers b/c air conditioning can be cold

~enter through Gate D; exit through Gate C 


IMPORTANT: if absent/leave early,  all students must go to office the next school day BEFORE SCHOOL BEGINS / BEFORE their 1st PERIOD with a note to get a "readmit" slip which must be signed by all of your teachers whose class you missed; if don't have a note, still go to the office to tell them that you were out and they will give you a different slip until you bring in your note.
