Dear Bulldog Families,

We hope everyone is having a great summer. We know families are starting to shop for "Back to School" items, so we wanted to share some information to assist everyone. Below is the grades 7 - 12 dress code. Please note that we will be returning to our Pre - Covid backpack rules. Students may use a backpack to transport school materials to and from school but must remain in their locker throughout the school day. Lastly, the supply lists for junior high are linked below and on the district website. For high school students each teacher will give their students what is needed for each particular class, once students receive their schedules in August, so as to prevent families from purchasing unnecessary items.
