  • Sports Tryout Information: If you plan to participate in athletics in August then you must return all of the necessary forms by the deadline set by your coach or no later than the first day of practice/tryouts. You MUST have documentation of a current physical on file in order to participate. You may try out for sports teams before paying the extracurricular activity (ECA) fee. However, once you have been selected for a team or activity, the fee must be paid through the Board of Education or the selection will be revoked. Paying the fee in advance does not guarantee your selection for a team or activity, nor does it supersede academic eligibility requirements. The ECA fee should be paid through School Cash Online (SCO). If you have not received your pin or are having trouble accessing SCO you may call the main office for support. Visit the team pages at for specific tryout information for fall teams.
  • Class Supplies: There is no school supply list for high school. Students should bring a simple notebook, paper, a pen, and a pencil and will receive more specific instructions on what is needed for each class from their teachers. If you have a financial obligation to the school, please help us by paying immediately. You should contact Ms. Virginia Howard in the school bank at 240-740-6913. If you have financial difficulty in paying, please contact the assistant principal who is your class administrator. Click here for the list of Assistant Principal duty assignments.
