Second Semester Schedule Changes:

If a student would like to make a request for a second semester schedule change, the request must be turned into the counseling office by the close of school on Friday, December 1. Students are encouraged to talk to their counselor about any schedule change requests to ensure graduation requirements are being met. Always remember, there is no guarantee changes will be made for every request.

To make a request for a schedule change a student must obtain a green Request to Change form from the counseling office. To complete the form, be sure to include the following information:

1. Reason for the request

2. If requesting to leave a full year class, student must get teacher initials.

3. Parent Signature

4. Student Signature

Financial Aid:

One of the first steps of the college financial aid process is completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form. The FAFSA enables students who qualify to receive federal/state grants, scholarships, as well as to participate in work-studies programs. This form was available for submission on October 1. ALL senior parents are reminded to fill out and submit their FAFSA form as soon as possible!

College Fairs:
