Image result for school suppliesSchool Supply lists are not posted, as Teachers communicate to students what is needed for class during Freshman Orientation.  Spiral bound notebooks, composition books, pencils, pens, highlighters and calculators are usually all you need for supplies.  3 ring binders and/or Trapper keepers are not required, but encouraged to to assist with homework organization.     

Chromebooks - All students in grades 9-11 are required to have a Chromebook, as this is a key instructional tool to support and prepare our students academically.  All 9th-grade students will receive a district 1:1 device and will pay a $50/year
“Personalized Technology Use Fee.”  The entire amount of this fee goes back to the district 1:1 program to cover the costs associated with sustaining the program. Costs associated with students who receive a device include the device and protective case, digital learning tools, internet filtering, bandwidth, and additional support.

For fee payment, log in to Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
