If you would like your child participate in a summer learning opportunity at Carrington from July 11 - July 28, Monday - Thursdays from 8:45 - 12:45,  please complete the Summer Bridge registration form that went home with your child and return it to Carrington.  
On Wednesday, April 13th all rising 7th and 8th grade students will select their elective courses for the 2022-2023 school year.  Elective course selections will be conducted through PowerSchool and students can make changes through April 20th.  You are encouraged to review your child’s selections through your  MyPortal account.  If you have questions regarding the course selection process, please contact your child’s grade level counselor.

Car Riders, please be advised that we are now requiring an adult to sign in their child if the student arrives after 7:25 AM. What this means is that if a student arrives after 7:25 AM, the adult driving the vehicle will need to park their car and come inside to sign-in their students. This is being done in an effort to bring awareness to the importance of regular on-time attendance. Please remember that our doors open at 7:00 AM and we encourage students to arrive early.

Parents of athletes, please be reminded that athletes who are not fully vaccinated must participate in on site covid testing in order to compete on Monday.  Students who arrive late to school and miss testing will not be allowed to compete.  Please ensure that your athlete is on campus prior to 10:30 am.
