What to Expect at Schedule Pick Up:
Student Fees
Registration Fee (required) This $22 fee covers partial cost of a student planner, assembly programs, towel services for physical education, and some team-sponsored activities.  

Yearbook (optional)
The John Muir yearbook is called The Highlander and is distributed at the end of the school year. It is a great way to remember events and people for years to come. The cost for the all color, hardcover book is $23.
School Nutrition Services
John Muir maintains a closed campus for the school day, including lunch. Students may bring a lunch, or they may purchase a lunch at school for $2.60 per day. Breakfast is also available before the start of the school day for $1.55. Ala carte items are available for both lunch and breakfast. Families who feel they qualify for either free or reduced lunch/breakfast MUST fill out the form available at school during Schedule Pick Up or online by following this link.  Online Application   
Physical Education Supplies
Students will need a John Muir gym shirt, shorts and appropriate shoes for all physical education classes. A gym shirt will be available for $8. Shirts from previous years can be used.  Students are to purchase a lock for their gym locker from the PE Department for $6, which will also be available during Schedule Pick Up. We ask that all students use this district issued lock so that we can maintain a master list of combinations.  Locks purchased from John Muir in previous years can be used, and the same lock can be used at Wausau West High School.  A one-piece swimsuit is also needed for swimming classes.
Athletic Fees
Participation in an interscholastic sport requires a $30 user fee for EACH sport. This fee is separate from the registration fee. We will only accept the user fee for fall sports at Schedule Pick Up.

Transportation
Representatives from First Student and MetroRide will be available during Schedule Pick Up days. Students living in rural areas will receive their route instructions directly from the First Student bus driver. Students who live in the city, but two or more miles from John Muir, can pick up bus tickets and route schedules before school begins. All other students wishing to ride the city bus can purchase bus tickets or a monthly pass. The costs are 10 tickets for $8.50 or monthly-unlimited ride passes for $19. Checks should be made out to MetroRide.
Hallway Lockers
Students will be assigned a hallway locker when they pick up their schedules. These lockers are to be used for storing school supplies and personal items necessary for use at school. Lockers are the property of the school and may be opened and inspected by school administrators at any time. School personnel may take possession of any item in a locker which violates any Wisconsin law or school policy. In an effort to maintain the new condition of our lockers and ensure their looks and durability for years to come, nothing is to be taped or attached on the outside of the locker.  NO CONTACT PAPER is to be used inside the locker! (It leaves behind a sticky residue and is very difficult to clean.)  All items inside the lockers need to be secured with magnets. We kindly ask that you refrain from using any type of tape on he inside of the lockers. If tape is used, it must be “painter tape,” which can be purchased at most discount or home improvement stores.  Items are not to be stored on top of the banks of lockers. After students have picked up their schedules, they may explore the school to find their rooms and lockers.  They may also bring school supplies if they wish to stock their lockers before school begins.
Yearbook and ID Photo
Each student will have their “traditional” student photograph taken during Schedule Pick Up.  This photo will be used for both their student ID card and as their portrait for the yearbook. Students who are not photographed at Schedule Pick Up will have an alternate photo taken for their ID card in our Student Services Office and will need to be present on our picture re-take day for their yearbook photo.
