Early Release or Late Arrival Early Release and Late Arrival are not looked upon favorably by competitive colleges. Just write ER or LA on your card if you want this option. If you want it every day, write ER or LA in 2 boxes. If you want it every other day, write ER or LA in 1 box. You earn no rank points and no credit for ER/LA. You must leave the building immediately if you are taking an early release. This means you need a car or a ride home!!
Aide Positions Office Aide, Teacher Aide, Counselor Aide and Library Aide positions are limited. You must find a teacher or staff member who needs an aide and get them to sign your card. Aide positions earn no rank points or credit and are not considered favorably by competitive colleges.

ELECTIVES You WILL NOT be allowed to make any elective changes, including alternates, once you come back to school in August. Please choose carefully!!! We hire staff based on the electives you choose now and order textbooks based on what you choose now. April 17th, our final verification date, is the last possible date to change an elective class.
Back Up Electives You MUST write in 4 back up electives on your card. Very frequently, counselors will need to use one or more back up classes. Senior schedules are hard to make! Choose both one semester and full year back ups. We need to have both options to pick from. CHOOSE CAREFULLY! You can’t change these after April 17th.
Course Load Seniors must sign up for a minimum of SIX classes on your schedule (three each day). FIVE of the classes must earn state credit.
Additions to the Course Card AP Human Geography (one semester Social Studies elective) Sports Management (double blocked unpaid internship; has a prerequisite)
Reminder about PAP and AP All students who sign up for PAP or AP courses must stay for the entire first 6 weeks grading period before a drop to regular will be considered. NO DROPS will be allowed until first 6 weeks ends, and a meeting will be held with your teacher, your parent, and you if you do decide you want to drop. The grade earned first 6 weeks goes with you to the new class should you drop.
