A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

Greetings and welcome back from Christmas break! I hope that each of you had a wonderful and restful time of fellowship with family and friends. Today has been a successful start to our second semester as we have been excited to have our students and staff back on campus. I personally appreciate your support and patience as we have already had to navigate weather opportunities. We are already monitoring forecasts for days ahead and will seek to make decisions that are in the best interests of all stakeholders while communicating in a timely and effective manner. I fully understand that no weather-based decision will meet the needs of all stakeholders, and ensure you that we will seek to do our best to keep students on campus when it is safe to do so.

This week is the first week of our priority re-enrollment period as we plan for the upcoming school year. You should have received an email on January 2nd that outlined the process as well as provided pertinent information for the next school year (calendar, dress code, tuition, etc.). The priority enrollment period is crucial for our leadership team in regards to planning (staffing, class units, etc.) as we have three grade levels that are currently full. I want to encourage you to please complete this process by February 4th in order to receive the discounted re-enrollment fee.

I truly appreciate your partnership and look forward to seeing you on campus in the days ahead.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur

This decision is based upon forecasted sleet, snow, and freezing temperatures that will impact road conditions. All after school and evening activities including practices and games will be cancelled on Thursday, January 6. The Leadership Team will be monitoring the situation closely regarding the schedule for Friday and will communicate with families on Thursday regarding the decision.

All yearbook orders can be placed online--here is the link.

Senior Tributes and Business ads are available for purchase at the bottom of the link listed here.
