For high school students, this change means that items such as graphing calculators are optional and will be provided at no charge and workbooks will be provided at no cost to families. Personal school supplies are still required and include those items that are carried from class to class by a student.
All high school students are encouraged to bring basic personal supplies, including a pen or pencil and paper, on the first day of school. If you are unable to provide these items, they will be provided to your student at no cost. Please contact the school counseling office for confidential assistance.
