9 Weeks ending soonPosted by Clint Shuman at 9/29/2017
Just a reminder that this is a short 9 weeks. The next IPR will come out in 2 weeks and ends next Friday. Any student failing when IPR's come out will be ineligible for until 9 weeks report cards come out. Since it is a short 9 weeks grades will be pulled for report cards 6 days after the IPR comes home so please be checking your students grades on FOCUS.
Also, congratulations to our sports teams. They are getting off to a great start and playing hard. Check out facebook for pictures.
There are also some amazing things happening in the classrooms. Ask your students what they are learning. We will post pictures at times of some of the great learning happening here on campus.
Also, we will be giving flu shots here on campus to students. Check out the link on the home page.

First week is in the booksPosted by Clint Shuman at 8/31/2017
Wow the first week of school has flown by. It started off a little crazy with all the weather and delayed start and modified schedule but, we have finished the week in amazing fashion. Our students have done a great job of getting to classes and being engaged in classes. The busses seem to have figured out their routes and are arriving on time. Please know we continue to reach out to Durham to communicate how the bus operations are going and we appreciate your patience.
The girl's volleyball team has almost been decided. Football is practicing.
Next week holds our first volleyball game and Open House. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.

I did not make it to Schedule Verification Now WhatPosted by Clint Shuman at 8/18/2017
If you were not able to attend schedule verification do not worry. Your student will still get their schedule on the first day of school. We will be sending home the first day packet with our student to fill out and ask that you return it completed as soon as possible. If your student has not gotten updated shots they will need to do so before they are allowed to start school.
So where does my student go on the first day. This will be posted on the school windows on Friday 8/25/17. This will be where they report first they and become their EPIC 1.0 room. We will also have teachers in the hallways ready to help direct students to the proper place.
