  1. Review the course schedule for each son on PowerSchool. If there are schedule errors, submit a course change request. Counselors will prioritize and attempt to address these requests beginning on August 1.

  2. Review the Book and App Purchasing page for school materials that will be delivered through the school or that need to be purchased by students.

  3. Complete the summer reading book “24th and Glory” before the first day of school. This study guide will help students focus on the important parts of the story. Books were mailed to each student in June. If you don’t have the book, contact the High School Office.

  4. Read over the Student-Parent Handbook with your student. 

  5. By July 31, one parent needs to log on to PowerSchool to update student and parent information and complete the handbook agreement. Start by selecting “Annual Update” in the left column under each son's name. By signing the handbook, you are approving the Pandemic Response Plan Addendum that will be emailed to families before August 1. If you have trouble logging on to PowerSchool, contact the High School Office.

  6. Confirm that parent mobile phones are registered with our emergency text notification service by texting "yes" to 68453. It is okay to repeat this process each year if you’re not sure you are registered.

  7. IF the student has a life-threatening condition such as severe asthma, allergies, diabetes or seizures, submit an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) to the Dean of Students Office.

  8. IF the student needs to take prescription medication while at school, complete and return to the Dean of Students Office the Prescription Medication/Authorization to Carry and Self-Administer Form which requires a physician’s signature.

  9. For this year only the Nebraska State Athletic Association (NSAA) has changed the physical exam requirement for students trying out for a NSAA or club sport. Incoming freshmen must have a physical dated May 1, 2020 or later. All sophomores, juniors and seniors who currently have a physical on file from last year (2019-2020) do NOT need a new physical. After your physician completes the physical examination form, return it to the High School Office prior to August 10. 

  10. Find your son's locker assignment on PowerSchool a few weeks after schedules are published. Big Brothers will deliver the Prep-required padlocks to freshmen and transfer students. The $5 cost will be charged to the student’s FACTS account.

  11. Purchase your son's parking permit online for $10 if he is going to drive to school. Permits purchased before August 16, 2020 at 6 p.m. will be distributed during community period on August 19, 2020 and can be purchased anytime throughout the year.
