When can my child change his schedule?
Schedules will not be changed once a quarter has started and it is the responsibility of the student to have ALL schedule changes taken care of prior to the beginning of each quarter.

Please note that schedule changes for non-substantive requests will not be considered. These reasons may qualify as a necessary schedule change: medical or physical restrictions, computer error, or academic misplacement. A student may change their schedule to add a class for any of these reasons before the quarter begins.


How do I request a transcript be sent to a college?
Students need to request their transcript from Docufide. You can get to the Docufide site by going to our website. Once at the high school website, you can click on "transcripts" under "frequently visited sites." All transcripts for students who graduated in 2010 or later will be sent electronically to the college. For those who graduated prior to 2010, there is a form to complete and send to the school for your transcript request.

What is the Infinite Campus Portal?
The Infinite Campus Portal allows parents and students access to their school attendance, grades, class assignments and more! Grades and attendance can be checked at any time by accessing the portal, rather than waiting for the report card at the end of the quarter to view that information.

What do I do if I can't remember my password to the parent portal?
