  • Quarter IV Choice Hour Registration Due March 13 - Quarter IV Choice Hour Registration is now available. Selection Sheets were due back on Monday, March 13 by 4pm to be on time. A completed selection sheet with payment for each student must be returned to the front office before the listed deadline. We will not schedule students into classes if payment in full is not included with the choice hour selection sheet. Students who do not turn in a selection sheet with payment by the deadline will not be allowed to make a change in their schedule once they receive it. Students who do not turn in a selection sheet will not be placed in any Choice Hour classes. If a class should go to a lottery for student placement, priority will be given to students who turn in their choice hour selection sheets by the deadline. Choice Hour Packets and Selection Sheet
