Trimester Schedules Released
We’re releasing 2nd and 3rd trimester schedules tonight, though our counselors and administrators are still completing a few schedules.
We enrolled close to twenty more students than projected in August, so we’re working hard to find ways to provide complete schedules for a handful of students. We’ll send separate emails to parents whose child may have a slight change.
