    School Supply Information
     

    In the past, each grade level had a specific list of supplies needed for the start of school. Good news - the amount of supplies needed has decreased over the years and we no longer require the same amount or provide lengthy lists. 

    Each student will be issued a district-distributed chromebook for which he/she will be responsible. With that in mind, a required supply includes a carrying case for the chromebook. Carrying cases are used to transport chromebooks throughout the school day in between classes and might include: messenger bags, padded cases with strap or handle, or string bags. It is important to choose something sturdy and supportive. (Backpacks are too bulky, take up too much space, and pose a safety hazard when carried in the hallways so please refrain from purchasing a backpack for your child's chromebook transport to and from class. All backpacks must be stored in the student's locker and can only be used to bring necessary items to and from school.)

    Students are also required to have ONE 3 ring binder with looseleaf paper as a well as ONE notebook for math class. It is not necessary to buy a binder for each course. Pens, pencils and highlighters are still a necessity so please keep those handy for school and at home. 
     
    In short, the necessary supply list follows:
    • Carrying case for chromebook (students cannot carry a backpack throughout the school day)
    • One 3 ring Binder
    • One notebook
    • Pens, pencils, highlighters
