    Students: Changing your Schoology Password

    Every six months students will need to reset their Schoology password. In order to do that you need your student ID number, your birthdate and a four digit PIN number. The PIN number can be obtained from your Period 2 teacher. Once you have those, click on the link below for step by step instructions. (Thank you Mr. McCluskey for your help!)

    Parents: Fill out the School Experience Survey

    Parents:

    The window for the School Experience Survey has been extended. It is VERY important that we hear from everyone, as the data we collect guides our plans for the school. 

    While a few parents completed the survey on a paper form, parents can also complete the survey online. A 10 digit code is required for the online parent survey. The code is 8943 plus the six digit date of your child's birthdate - month, day, year. For example, if your child was born January 1, 1980, your survey code would be 8943010180. As another example, If your child was born May 3, 1978, your survey code would be 8943050378.  

    You only submit one response - even if you have multiple children at the school.

    The window for online submission has been extended until December 14, 2018. We are looking forward to getting your survey response! 😉
