Due to the increasing number of students who tend to "lose"permission forms, we have decided to post our permission forms online. Please note that all students will continue to receive handouts of trip and permission forms from homeroom teachers, however, if a student has "misplaced"a form and the extras have run out in the office, we will be referring students to our website to print their own required forms themselves. Please visit our "forms"section on the left side of the "About Us" page of our website to view and print forms relating to trips and events. Most organized trips and events are curriculum based and it is strongly encouraged that all students attend the trip/event to enhance their knowledge and grades.
