Schedule Pick Up Information
All students will start the schedule pick up process at the Attendance Windows.

Students may pick up their schedules in the Cafeteria on the dates listed above ONLY if the following three conditions have been met:
1. The emergency card (being sent home in July) is thoroughly completed.  Both parents’/guardians’ signatures are required on this card, plus one emergency contact in addition to the parent/guardian.
2. The student has paid all debts and fees (a letter will be sent home at the beginning of July).
3. Seniors only:  For those of you that haven’t already done so, you must bring your completed Graduation Verification Petition and Senior Contract with you to pick up your schedule.  If a senior is completing his/her Community Service over the summer, he/she must bring proof of completion.
If you are not available (out of town, at work, etc.) for schedule pick up day or schedule correction day, you may send a representative in your place as long as you have provided them with all the required documentation. This includes the completed emergency card, payment of fees and debts, and a note from you granting the representative permission to pick up the schedule.
If students are not available on the above dates, schedules may be picked up on the first day of school in homeroom.  Homerooms are assigned alphabetically by student’s last name.  Homeroom lists will be posted all over campus on the first day of school.
The Counseling Center has made every effort to match student needs with available classes.  Therefore, there should be no reason for a schedule change unless there is an error on the student’s schedule. The Counseling Center provided each student on this campus ample opportunity to change and adjust his/her schedule.  These opportunities began in the spring when each student was given their course selection forms to fill out and ended with a one-on-one meeting with a counselor to confirm their selections for the 2016-2017 school year.  

Schedule corrections may be made for the following reasons ONLY:

• Enrolled in a class student has previously completed.
• Enrolled in a class student is not eligible to take.
• At a teacher’s request.
• Courses or periods duplicated.
• Course prerequisite met or not met.

Community Service

Summer is a great time for students to complete their 25 hours of community service to fulfill their graduation requirement. Submit a community service contract for each volunteer experience you complete to the College and Career Center. Students of the 2017 graduating class should have their 25 hours completed by August 2016.
