Class Scheduling

School days are designated by the letters A through F instead of Monday through Friday. This system allows us to schedule special programs. Unless otherwise stated, every Tuesday is an Activity Day. Activity period is 52 minutes long and gives certain groups practice time as well as clubs a chance to meet. Students may use this period to make up tests, meet with teachers, attend club meetings, go the library or catch up on their homework.
