Dear Diamondback Family,

What an exciting day we have had today with our teachers returning to campus. There has been a lot of excitement here today and we cannot wait for the students to arrive on Thursday Aug. 16. Our doors will open at 7:55a.m. each morning, and every student is eligible to receive a free and nutritious breakfast.  Our school day has changed a little this year, with classes  beginning at 8:20a.m. each day, and ending at 3:35p.m. We begin each day with Advisory, as a way to build relationships and set the tone with our students. Please ensure students are her every day at 8:20a.m.

As we begin the school year, we appreciate your patience with our transportation, as busses begin to work out their routes. Times may be delayed at the start of the school year, but will be more consistent. Thank you for your patience as we begin a new year.  

Upon student arrival on Aug. 16, students will be guided to our gym to receive their schedule. After schedule pick up, students will  have the opportunity to eat breakfast prior to class, before going to their designated hallways. On our first day, we will also have a pep rally beginning at 2:30 p.m., to build excitement for the new year. 

We look forward to seeing ALL of our students on Thursday!

Have a Great Diamondback Day,
