MASTER CALENDAR – Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Quick Link to Basic's Master Calendar is no longer functioning. We are expecting this to be a temporary issue, but do not know when it will be resolved. We are currently investigating alternatives and hope to have our calendar back up in some form soon. We apologize for any convenience.
SENIORS – All Seniors need to check the spelling of their name for their high school diplomas. The Senior lists are available in all government classes. There is also a copy outside of the Activities office in the MAC. If any Senior finds an error in the spelling of their name, they need to see Ms. Gonzales in the Acitivities Office to have it corrected. The deadline to complete this task is January 30th, 2015.
JUNIORS AND SENIORS – The ASVAB Test will be offered at Basic on December 4th, 2014. The purpose of the ASVAB is to help students identify their career-related interests. There is no cost to participate and the information gained from the test can be invaluable to a student's plans for the future. Interested students must sign up for the test in the Counseling Office.
