These new academic and enrichment programs were added to our online summer study program. Classes start in early July and end no later than August 17. Learn more.
Summer Homework Assignments. All students have a summer assignment for English and many have assignments for other courses. Assignments are posted on Canvas by course. Incoming students can access their summer assignments once they have completed the Canvas Introductory Activity and their preliminary course selections have been entered via the Parent Portal and reviewed by the School Office.

The Mantoux (PPD) results submitted must show testing between March 1 and August 1, 2020. Note: If your student participates in Fall sports, the physical must be valid within 6 months at August 31.
