    We hope that you have had a relaxing, enjoyable summer and that you are ready to kick off a great school year!  We look forward to welcoming back all students on Tuesday, September 3rd.  As in the past, we will not be mailing home student schedules, as they are available on the portal beginning on Monday, August 26th.   However, if you need a schedule printed for you, you can report to the following offices on opening day:


    8th Grade:  Attendance Office (Room 114)

    9th Grade: Main Office (Room 115)

    10th Grade: Mr. Greco’s office (Room 117)

    11th and 12th Graders: Counseling Center


    All requests for schedule changes will be handled during open drop-add only, which takes place on September 5th and 6th.  The only exception will be if a student is missing one of the required core course on his or her schedule (English, Social Studies, Math, Science, or Physical Education).

    We are happy to welcome the following new members to our staff this year:

    Mrs. Lynn Arlotta (Counseling Center Senior Clerk Typist)

    Mrs. Pam Cusimano (FACS)

    Mr. Corey Dukat (Social Studies)

    Mrs. Andrea Galipeau (Spanish)

    Ms. Katie Guyton (Psycholgist)

    Mr. Will Harbin (Teacher aide – welcome back!)

    Ms. Jackie Masker (Psychologist Intern)

    Mr. James Rustowiicz (Business)

    Mrs. Michelle Washington (Counseling center – welcome back!)

    Mrs. Kristen Williams (Science)

    Ms. Alena Zharykava (ENL)


    New Student Orientation will take place on August 28th, starting at 6:30 p.m.  That evening there will be a brief presentation followed by time for locker move-in and a chance to tour the school. 

    The following day, August 29th, we will be hosting “Be part from the Start” new student orientation beginning at 7:40 a.m.  Students will be welcomed by our LINK CREW. 

    Students, please note that school begins at 7:38 a.m., and ends at 2:21 p.m.  Be on time for school, and please remember that when the school day is over, you have the following options:


    1. Work with a teacher for the duration of the remedial period (2: 21 – 3: 05 p.m.)
    2. Join a club and enjoy some of the many extracurricular activities we have to offer.
    3. Report to Athletic Study Hall in the cafeteria.
    4. Leave the building. We do not have the resources to supervise students after hours, so you are not allowed to remain in the building unsupervised after the day is over. 


    Open House will take place on Wednesday, September 11th, beginning at 6:00 p.m., and we look forward to meeting our families at that time. 


    We hope you enjoy the remaining days of summer, and we will see you next week!
