Middle and High School Schedules Now Available

Students and Parents,

   All middle and high school schedules for 6th-12th grade students are ready. Our counseling department of Mrs. Spcier, Mrs. Horak, and Mrs. Martin have worked extremely hard to provide you with the best schedule possible. We have limitations to our scheduling movement as many of our secondary classes are at maximum capacity. Please keep that in mind when considering a scheduling change.  A schedule change request may or may not be an option for many students. Also, we will not be addressing schedule change requests outside of the normal working day. If you email a request change, we will not address it until the following business day. 

To view your schedule go to and click the PowerSchool link on the right side of the page. 

  If you don't have an account, you need to register for one with the school office starting Monday, August 24 from 8:00-3:00
Please remember, if you need a schedule change, you need to make time to request that prior to the 1st day of school. Further, your request may or may not be an option based on class sizes and offerings. 
Thank you for your patience! Go Marauders!

We all would like to offer our apologies for not being diligent or able to return every phone call this summer as our team is working to complete a phone system overhaul. Administrators have moved buildings and receiving messages has not occurred as effectively as we would like. Please remember that you can email all staff as well by using our directory. We hope to have our phone system in place within the next week or two, but we do not have a definite date.
