Semester 2 Schedule Changes


All students should review their semester 2 courses in PowerSchool prior to the winter break. If there are any errors in their S2 courses or classes that need to be changed, students can pick up a schedule change form (before/after school) from Ms. Valles in the Counseling office starting Wednesday, December 11th. If there are multiple requests, the student should include them all on one form. There will be no elective changes for spring unless approved by an assistant principal, coach, or sponsor. The deadline to request S2 changes will be Wednesday, January 8th. No requests will be accepted after this date.


On January 7, 2020, all students will receive a schedule that they should follow for the first day. The same day, counselors will be actively changing athletic and band switches, master schedule moves, student requests, and balance as needed. The goal is to have all changes done on January 7. Students will receive a "new" schedule on January 8, 2020 that should be their schedule for the rest of the year. Please be mindful that having everything done on the 7th is a goal, not a guarantee. We will be working as fast as possible to get the students settled in the right classes for the remainder of the year.

What is Bullying?


Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.


In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

  • An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
  • Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.

Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

What is Cyberbullying?


Cyberbullying is defined as willful harassment and intimidation of a person through the use of digital technologies, including, but not limited to, e-mail, blogs, texting on cell phones, social media sites (e.g., MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat etc), chat rooms, “sexting”, instant messaging, or video voyeurism by accessing or knowingly and willingly causing or providing access to data or computer software through a computer.


How do I report cyberbullying?
  • Tell a teacher, your counselor, or your Assistant Principal. The main thing is that you let an adult know so the issue can be addressed.
  • To report after hours, parents and students can contact the Office of Professional Responsibility Hotline at 1-800-530-1608, which is staffed 24 hours a day.
