From the Superintendent:  Please click here for information pertaining to our policy regarding foggy weather conditions.  When you do receive the School Reach call if you do not answer, please do not hit redial.  The call will automatically go to your voice mail where you can listen to it.

Mr. Kapper's Health classes will have a guest presentation from the Lighthouse Pregnancy Center on December 3 & 4.  If you do NOT want your child to participate, please read, sign and return the form that was sent home.  If you did not receive the form from your child, please click here.  All forms must be returned to the High School office by Monday, November 30.

Scholastic HiQ will be competing Monday evening in the semifinal round of their tournament.  They will finish no less than 4th place out of 32 teams.  Good Luck!


Students in Mr. Kapper’s Health classes, if you are not participating during the IN THE KNOW presentation on December 3 &4, your signed parent permission slip needs to be turned in by Monday, November 30 to the office.


Juniors will be operating the concessions booth on both Tuesday and Thursday this coming week.  We're looking for a few juniors for each game.


Starting next Monday, FBLA will be collecting money during lunch hours for the March of Dimes.  If your lunch hour raises $40 by Friday of each week, music will be played during lunch that Friday.  Each lunch hour will be separate so there could be one week that only one lunch gets to listen to music.  Remember, every dime counts!


We will not be having an Art Club meeting today.  We will meet during our regular time next week.


Serina Lee, Zoe Johnston, and Lorraine Magnus please turn in your volleyball uniform ASAP.

First semester final are odds Monday, December 21 and evens Tuesday, December 22.  Please do not schedule dentist, doctor or other appointments or out of town trips on these days.  Make up day will be January 4 in the event of an emergency or serious illness.  We will check junior and senior attendance on Friday, December 18 to determine exemptions.  No one is exempt from dual credit class finals.

On Friday October 30, after the students were dismissed at 11:45 local law enforcement in conjunction with the South Central High School conducted an active shooter training in our building. This was geared toward the law enforcement agencies that were present but the staff at the high school benefited greatly from this drill.  Our teachers and a few students were involved. During the drill several situations were presented and carried out by the participants. These pictures show some of the activity that went on during the afternoon. The guns you see are air soft guns and no real weapons were used during the drill.  This demonstrates the cooperation between the high school and local law enforcement agencies that help keep our students safe. Below are a few pictures that were taken during the drill.
