ATTENTION SENIORS:  - New FSA ID:  In May, the Department of Education implemented a new FSA ID to replace the FSA PIN as the login process for the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  Seniors and their parents need to create a FSA ID and are encouraged to do it now.  It's also important that students and parents create their own FSA ID as they will need them to sign and complete the FAFSA each year the student plans to apply for financial aid.  The following PDF walks through the steps for creating the new FSA ID needed to log into the FAFSA website.  Creating FSA ID

SENIOR GRADUATION REMINDERWe still have a few Seniors that need to stop by the Guidance Office to do the following:
  • We need your full name - first, middle and last as you would like it to appear on your diploma!
  • We need your height and weight - this is necessary for your graduation gown order.
  • $20 graduation fee to cover your graduation cap and gown (if you haven't paid it yet).
