The staff returns on Wednesday, January 3, and our students return on Thursday, January 4. The Advisement Bell Schedule is below. 

Students who earn between a 60-69 in content classes will have an opportunity to retake the class in Edmentum via Course Extension. Students who earn below a 60 will have to retake the entire class in a Credit Recovery course. The counselors will assist with scheduling students. There is a flyer with more detail below.
All Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to check the information in the Campbell News below for the Junior/Senior Prom. 

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
