In an effort to simplify the process of buying school supplies and in response to parent feedback, we are going to charge all students a $20 fee this year to purchase school supplies. Parents and guardians will still need to provide their student with a backpack, pencils, blue and/or black pens, loose leaf paper, earbuds, and a USB/thumb drive. This $20 fee is similar to that charged at our elementary schools for school supplies. While our teachers have done their best to purchase the supplies their students will need for their classes, we know there will be kinks to work out because this is our first time using this process. This means teachers may ask students to bring in additional supplies at the start of the school year. If this happens, our goal would be that these would be easy-to-find items. If this $20 fee causes a hardship for your family, please contact your studentâ€™s counselor (Carrie Diligencia A-K, Tim Suchsland L-Z).
