All Students should report to the main office to receive their room assignments.

  • Grades 8, 9, and 10 will be taking a practice SAT exam
  • Grade 11 and registered students will be taking the official SAT exam
  • Students will be dismissed early at 2:00pm

Students in grades 6 and 7 will have no school due to the disruption to our school day.

Everybody who has a scientific calculator should bring one.

Staffing Update

We are continuing our search for an English candidate to join our team. We have opened conversations with two potential candidates that we are very excited about, and will continue our search. We have a wonderful individual who has stepped in to support as a substitute and is currently working closely with Mrs. Sager. We will take our time to ensure that we find an excellent candidate that our Falcons deserve.

Additionally, Mr. Malik Amezaine has left our district. He has chosen a different direction to professionally explore, and we wish him the best of luck. We have already begun our search for an additional mathematics instructor and language instructor. We are very excited by the opportunity for cultural studies that Ms. Guthrie has expressed supporting with moving forward, and with the potential for more integrated collaboration with Jackson College's mathematics department.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly.
