Parent Communication Survey

From the Principal

First, I hope everyone is getting the help they need from the flooding we all endured recently. Additional information is available at the school and district should you need assistance navigating your way through the process. We are here to help.

Second, with the close of the first quarter rapidly coming to an end, October 20, I want to encourage all of our students to keep your attendance at school a priority and to work with your teachers to make up any work you may have missed. As a reminder, you are only allowed 7 unexcused absences per semester because you may be denied credit for a course if you go beyond that. In that case, an FA will be issued if you exceed that and you will need to do additional work the second semester for that class in order to receive credit, and I know students will be too busy to take on that additional load while working in their other classes.

Interims were sent home on Thursday October 15 and report cards will be passed out to students on October 29. I want to encourage all parents and guardians to work with your children and stay abreast of their attendance and grades as a part of the monitoring process. It is a huge help to your child when they know that you are also taking the time to look at interims, report cards, and have those teacher-parent conferences. If you have any questions about grades, please feel free to meet with your teachers to discuss grades as well as attendance or anything else you need regarding your child.

If our guidance team or administrative team can be of any assistance at anytime, please do not hesitate to call us.
