If you are a current 9th, 10th, or 11th grader, you received two emails on February 7 with important information about how to request classes for the 2020-21 school year. One email featured a Course Request Worksheet that can help you in identifying which classes you may want to take. The other email included a link for you to actually request your classes.
You will have the chance to talk with your academic mentor about this today, but we also suggest you talk with your parents and your current teachers as you decide which classes to take.
Please submit your course requests by Friday, February 21.
