Parents/Guardians of Seniors: There is a LOT happening between now and graduation! Please remember that all school work MUST be completed by Thursday, May 25 at 2:30 in order for students to graduate in June. Please read the Senior / Class of 2023 Information slideshow in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole to learn about about grades, prom, class day, and graduation.
