Seniors, FASFA is a graduation requirement this year. You will need to return a waiver to show you have completed your FASFA application, or a non-participation form to exempt you. One of these waivers is due soon in order to receive your diploma. Please check the counseling google classroom or see Mrs. Raines in the library for a waiver packet.


Seniors:  if you haven’t turned in your senior pictures yet for the graduation slideshow, they are due NOW!   If you are unable to get senior pics done, see Ms. Thacker and she can do them after school.

Remember to return or renew your library books.  Fines will be assessed starting next week.
