Stuff You Need to Know

Yearbook Distribution Info- Current Students (Sophomore, Juniors, and Seniors):  All next week (9/20-9/24), we will be distributing yearbooks to current students during the lunch periods and after school from 3:05-3:35 in the student cafeteria. Students should bring their school ID. After next week, students should see Mr. DiFilippo in room 366 for their books.

Class of 2021 Grads: Their yearbooks are available too. If they purchased a personalized book (with names, etc.), they should use the Southwest Highway entrance and pick it up from the main office 126 during regular office hours (7:30-4:00 PM). If they bought a regular yearbook, there will be staff members in the Spartan lobby to help distribute books from 3:15-3:45 PM all next week as well. If that short window doesn’t work, just use the Southwest Highway entrance, and pick up a book in 126 during office hours (7:30-4:00). Thank you
