SmartBreakfast (SCHEDULE)
Don't forget that tutoring is available each morning 8:00 am - 8:25 am.  Most teachers have SmartBreakfast at least two days a week.  Several students have been taking advantage of this opportunity to get assistance with material and begin preparing for exams.  You can check out the schedule linked above and on our website.

Chromebooks for Exams
Students will need to bring FULLY CHARGED Chromebooks for exams.  Students who have school-issued devices and do not bring them on exam days must make-up the exam on a different day.  Students who use personal devices during the semester will be allowed to check out a Chromebook on the morning of their exams.  No personal devices may be used for exams.
