I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break!  Students will return to school on Tuesday, April 3 for the start of the fourth quarter.  These last nine weeks will be very busy as we approach the end of the 2017-2018 school year.  Hopefully the cold weather and flu season are behind us.  This past quarter our attendance was down significantly from earlier in the year.  Our freshmen had the best attendance for the 3rd quarter - 94%.  Absences can have a negative effect on learning and academic progress, so please try to be here each and every day.
