Dear Parents and Guardians,

As I write to you today, we are preparing for the end of the first quarter. The fall sports season has quickly concluded and we admire and appreciate all of our student athletes, particularly those whose performances brought boys and girls soccer, field hockey, volleyball and football to the sectional finals...full text of letter...

ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENTS:

As per state guidelines and policy change, we have moved from a 4.0 grade point scale to a 100 point numerical scale. Beginning with the Class of 2016 (current juniors), we will be reporting to colleges using the new scale. Beginning with the recently concluded first marking period report cards, honor roll status is determined using this new scale. I encourage you to check the Parent Portal for an updated report card using this new system. Current senior transcripts will remain on the original 4.0 grade point scale.
