    Back to School Forms

    On the first day of school, students brought home many forms that need to be returned to school by Monday. If your child has not yet returned forms to their homeroom teacher, please ensure they are completed and returned to school on Monday. 

    BOCES Students

    All BOCES students received in the mail a contract to sign in regards to BOCES attendance. This was to be signed and returned to Mrs. Stowe in the High School Main Office by today. If a student does not have a completed contract, they will not attend BOCES until the contract is completed. 

    Drop Date

    The last day for students to drop a course is Friday, September 13th. Students will not be able to drop any courses after this date. Students must meet with Mrs. Burns for any schedule changes. Appointments can be made with Mrs. Stowe in the High School Office. 

    Late Bus Runs

    Late bus runs at 3:30pm begin Tuesday, September 10th, and will run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Students must obtain a pass from their teacher to or after-school study hall supervisor to ride the late bus. A 5:30pm evening bus is also available, but students must sign up by Wednesday for the following week for the evening bus. Students are welcome to stay after-school with a teacher for extra help or time to complete work from 2:50-3:30pm. Students on campus must be at a supervised location during this time. 

    Student Parking

    Any students wishing to drive themselves to school will need to obtain a parking pass from the High School Office. Vehicles must display the parking pass when on campus. When operating on school property, drivers must follow posted speed limits and be cautious for pedestrians. 


    Student use of personal cellphones is prohibited during the instructional day. Students in grades 9-12 may use their phone appropriately during their lunch period. In study hall, students may be able to use their device to listen to music at the discretion of the classroom teacher.
