    • Students will take their school picture, receive their ID card, pick up their tentative schedule, be issued lockers and textbooks, and have the option to purchase PE clothes. 

    • Please note that all incoming 7th graders must have a TDAP on file with our health aide in order to get in line for registration. Please contact Kaleen Rephser ( for TDAP information. 

    • Access to the online portal for Data Confirmation will be made available during the summer. Please be sure and bring your signed "Data Confirmation Sheet" and "Student release in case of a disaster" to registration day.
