    Class of 2027 Freshmen Orientation

    Monday, August 14th will be a day of fun for our incoming Freshmen. Click HERE to RSVP.

    ID Photos, Schedule & Textbook Pick Ups:


    Students will once again have ONE identification card. Students are expected to carry their ID Cards at all times and are required for admission to school events. This year, ALL students will take their ID Photo during their scheduled day and time (Click link above). It is very important that students come during their scheduled time to make sure that they get their ID card with all specialized information (SAC, Off-Campus pass) permanently affixed to the card, and they will receive their ID Cards THAT DAY so that they are ready to go for the first day of school.

    For those who miss their scheduled time, they will not be able to get their IDs until after school begins on the photo makeup day, Tuesday, August 29th.  This means that no 11th or 12th Grade Students will be able to get their off-campus passes until after that time, and students will not be able to use their SAC card for any events until they have their ID Cards.  The replacement for lost or stolen ID cards will be $10.00.

    We recommend parents of 11th and 12th Grade students come into the office between August 7th and August 11th this summer to sign the off-campus pass agreement. This will allow our staff to emboss the necessary permissions onto the cards at Orientation. Eligible juniors and seniors will NOT be allowed to leave campus until their parents sign the parent consent form for off-campus lunch passes. Eligibility is based off of a minimum of a 2.0 and no Fs on your 2023 Final Report Card, as well as no more than 5 period truancies during quarter 4 of your 2022-23 school year. Any excessive attendance issues or major disciplinary actions within the 22-23 school year will be evaluated and will effect eligibility as well. Eligibility will be reevaluated at the end of semester one.

Students must have their physical ID card with the appropriate stamp in order to leave campus. Students without an Off Campus Lunch pass must be signed out by a parent or guardian in the main office.
