Temporary High School Entrance

The front entrance to the high school has been closed due to the construction that has begun at the high school office and entrance.  We are asking everyone this summer to enter the high school at the northeast end of the building.  This is the back hallway by the Vo Ag classroom at the student parking lot.  The high school office personnel (principal, secretary, guidance counselors) are being housed in the high school library this summer. 

The superintendent’s office is currently in their normal location.  However, if you need to go to the superintendent’s office, please call in advance as construction has made access to the central office difficult.
