Culinary arts student Darryus Lowe was awarded his prizes for winning the 2013 Let’s Do Gourmet High School Recipe Challenge on Friday, May 17.

It has come to our attention that students have seen a grade for the End–of-Course exam for U.S. History in eSembler. The district’s Office for Accountability, Research and Measurement states that this score is considered a t-score and may not be an exact score used to calculate a final grade. A t-score is how students performed when compared to other students in the state. When the district clarifies how these scores will be used, we will notify you again via another school-connects phone call. Again, please understand the score you see in eSembler may not be the grade used to calculate a final U.S. History grade.
May 20 and 21 are regular school days.
After May 21, seniors may be on school grounds during the school day for the following reasons:
- May 22: To participate in the Senior Field Day activities.
- May 29: To attend the mandatory graduation rehearsal in the main gym at 9:30AM. Seniors should park in the north lot and remain in the gym. This is considered a school-sponsored event, so students must comply with the Dress Code.
Seniors who have to conduct school business must do so after student-contact hours. Our faculty and staff are available from 2:00 – 2:30PM each afternoon.
Drop-in visitations are not permitted during the remainder of the school year. Seniors found loitering on campus, including the parking lot, run the risk of losing their privilege to participate in the graduation ceremony. Please help us ensure a safe learning environment for underclassmen by adhering to our expectations.
