Seniors– Welcome to senior year! I am so excited to begin working with you and helping you with applications. We are not able to send transcripts just yet. First, we are working to ensure all students have an accurate schedule for the first day of school. After that, I will have to go through all transcripts so the gpa and ranking information is accurate for college applications. I will send out instructions for sending transcripts as soon as they are available. -Amanda Byrd
