Dixie parents: Please disregard your child’s fall schedule that you are able to view in PowerSchool today. Every year PowerSchool produces schedules, according to student requests, but most of them have to be altered (by the Guidance Office) dramatically so things are taken in the correct sequence, and often times in different semesters. Due to online registration being an convenient option, you are able to view an “unchecked” schedule. Keep enjoying the summertime, and check back with PS on Aug 8.
Please spread the word! 😊
