Application can be found to the right under "Quick Links".
Youth Employment Service (YES)
All students interested in looking for employment, or volunteer jobs, the YES Program is here to assist you. The Coordinator Lisa, located in the library, is usually in on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30-2:30. Her hours are always posted in and outside of the library for the current week, and you can find listings of available jobs there, as well as outside of the cafeteria and within the guidance office.
An important part of our responsibility in ensuring student success includes maintaining a safe and secure school environment. As you know, throughout each school year, we practice safety drills and review school safety procedures with our students. The New Year is a good time to review some of the important safety protocols that are currently in place at the high school. We ask that you emphasize with your son or daughter the importance of knowing and following all safety plans that exist in the school and to be diligent each and every time there is a drill.
To maintain our safety we have school security personnel located both inside and outside the building in addition to members of our faculty and administration throughout the building all day. All doors to the building will be locked after 7:45 AM. All visitors are expected to enter through the main office (flagpole side) entrance to the building and sign in with the security desk located in the lobby. Visitors will be issued a visitor’s pass and are expected to wear this pass so that it is prominently noticeable at all times. Security, faculty and staff are expected to question unknown adults when they are encountered in the school. Please understand that when you are questioned or asked for identification, it is not to be unwelcoming but intended to ensure that only those who should be in our school are granted access.
Emergency Contact Information
Please be sure that the school has accurate and current emergency contact information for your child on file in the main office. To review this information, contact the registrar’s office at 630-3099.
While the next three months will seem to move swiftly, there is much to do. Take advantage of all that occurs at the high school, join us at any of the co-curricular or interscholastic activities (even if your son or daughter is not a direct participant), attend the orientation sessions that pertain to you, make sure you are a member of the PTA list serve and join us at the monthly meetings, contact us (teachers, counselors or administrators) with anything that you think we need to know, and most importantly, maintain a high frequency of communication with your son or daughter.
Enjoy the journey, for as challenging as it may seem now, there will be a time down the road when you will look back on it and just smile!!
