We have not posted the Student/Parent Handbook for the upcoming school year and we know some of you are wondering about the dress code as you tackle Back to School Shopping.  Click here to take a look. 

Only students who need a schedule change should attend the scheduling verification days.  All others will be set to go for the first day of school.  More specific information will be included with the schedules, which will be mailed by August 6.

School supply lists are available by grade level and program. These lists reflect the majority of the supplies needed for English, Math, Science, and Social Studies core classes. Students will receive elective supply lists during the first week of school along with requests for any additional supplies they may need.

Thanks to those of you who responded to the refrigerator request.  Our staff now has one in the new Teacher's Work Room thanks to the Johnson family!

New students are encouraged to attend transition camp.  Transition camps are designed to help new students learn about the school, meet new teachers and classmates, and learn their way around the campus. Transportation will be provided for Academy Camp and Magnet 6th Grade Camp. Check here for updates as the bus schedule will be included once it is finalized. No registration is required. We look forward to seeing all of our new Hornets in August!

Online Registration is still available for the 2016-2017 school year. We are now at 63% registered online.  Staff will be available to help with online registration on August 10 for those who need support.  Keep them coming!

Ms. Rivera, the Kealing Registrar, will be organizing First Day Packets on Monday, August 15, 2016 from 8:00 am - 11:00 am. We are looking for parent volunteers to help stuff envelopes. Click here to sign up if you are available to pitch in, even if only for part of the time.
