Frequently Asked Questions Q: How will the Durgee bus loop be impacted by the change in traffic pattern? A: The direction of the Durgee bus loop will remain the same. Busses will line up in front of Durgee and release students curbside. The only change will be the way busses enter the loop. Instead of entering from Albert Palmer Drive busses will enter the loop from the Baker side of campus.
Frequently Asked Questions Q: When will we receive a supply list? A: Students should have the following basic supplies for the first day: pen, pencil, paper. Each teacher will discuss his/her specific supply list the first day of school. Q: What time does the building open? A: Doors open at 7:35. If your student is a walker please time his/her arrival with this in mind. We do not have an indoor holding area where students can wait.
Frequently Asked Questions Q: Where does my child report the first day of school? A: Each student received a schedule indicating his/her homeroom. On Wednesday, September 8th students will report to homeroom. Schedules and materials (locker combinations, agendas, etc.) will be distributed during this time. Beginning Tuesday, September 9th students will report to their 1st period class upon arrival and homeroom will be in the afternoon.
