Student Affairs Information

The Student Affairs Office is located on the first floor on the south side/gym side of the school building. Housed within this area are the Student Affairs Coordinator/Attendance Officer and the private office of the Dean of Student Life/Disciplinarian.

The Student Affairs Office is the resource center for a myriad of student-related issues. After reading the following information it will be easy to see how virtually every student, sooner or later, will have a reason to visit what is referred to as the “SAO”.
