Delivering Messages or Personal Items

The Attendance Office does not deliver items or messages to students in non-emergency situations. We do this to maintain an uninterrupted learning environment.

Students are responsible for bringing everything with them at the start of the day. This includes, but is not limited to, homework, study materials, uniforms, and lunches.

We do not have a drop off area. Items are left at your own risk!

We appreciate your understanding that instructional time should not be interrupted.
