Weekly Update – March 24


Student Class Schedule Balancing Period (March 28-April 13)

At this time we have a freeze on all changes to students’ 2022-2023 academic schedules as we finish up the process at each grade level. Starting Monday, March 28, and up until we depart for Easter Break, we will allow students to request minor changes to their schedule to balance the rigor of their courses. Our ability to honor such requests will be limited, however, so students should meet all prerequisites for a course they are requesting; there will not be an opportunity to appeal. (The appeals process is now closed for all grade levels except rising sophomores, who have until the end of the day tomorrow, March 25. Appeals decisions will be sent out the week of April 4.) We will make changes to students’ course requests based on space available in individual courses, so not all requests will be honored. Please keep in mind that these changes do not guarantee the course will be on a student’s official schedule for the fall. Seniors especially should know that their requests may conflict when we build the master schedule. Any student wishing to make a change to his course requests during this period should contact his counselor directly.

Cafe Purchases Require Student ID

For a variety of reasons, some instances of unauthorized charges for food from the cafeteria were reported last week. In response to this issue, we have returned to the exclusive use of student ID cards to purchase food from the cafeteria. Therefore, effective Tuesday, March 22nd, all students are required to scan their student ID and show their card to the clerk to purchase any food or beverage items from the cafeteria. No items will be sold without a student ID card present. Since students have always been required to have their physical ID card in their possession when they are on campus, this change does not place an undue burden on any students. By having their ID card ready for use prior to arriving at the cash register, our students have also helped to make the process of securing lunch more efficient, which has resulted in more time for them to eat and enjoy a well-earned break in the middle of the school day. For students worried about forgetting or misplacing their ID card, we have suggested placing the ID card in their cell phone case. Should a student find themselves in a position where they forgot their ID card at home, they should check into the Dean’s Office prior to going to the cafeteria so that we can ensure that they can still get food that day. In addition, if a student loses or misplaces his student ID card and needs a replacement, student ID cards are available for purchase and can be reprinted in the Dean’s Office for $10.
