After a student completes a make-up final exam, a grade change will be made if necessary.


Happy Holidays.

COUNSELORS CORNER

Did you know??? Seniors received their ASVAB score reports this week and we were able to explore their possibilities on the ASVAB website. Students got great information on careers they may enjoy, education required for those careers, and what colleges offered their degree programs. It was a lot of fun to watch as they accessed information that was so completely relevant to them. Be sure to ask your student about their experience!


Did you know??? Counselors spent several days this week talking to students about next year's registration possibilities. Students asked great questions about career paths, classes, and options for them as we move them forward to the next year. We also talked about what students need to do if they fail a course and lose credit...for our students, this means an Edgenuity course on their own time. It's much easier to pass a course than to make it up, so be sure to encourage your student to get their work turned in, and to do well on the tests so they can pass.


Did you know??? December's Coyote Care focus is Kindness. Kindness matters and it's not just the person receiving kindness that benefits. Studies show that doing kind acts for others can increase levels of happiness and optimism, and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. Want to know more??

DECEMBER BREAKFAST AND LUNCH MENU

HELP SECURE FUNDING FOR YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL

Did you know that the J.O. Combs Unified School District receives federal funding for your child's school based on the income eligibility of our families? We need you to confirm your income eligibility to help ensure our schools do not lose important funding that directly benefits our students. The process takes less than five minutes and can be completed online. Please note, you do not have to disclose your actual income, you will simply have to select if you qualify for an income bracket.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Currently, federal funding from Title I supports several critical functions for your students, including instructional coaches, reading specialists, and other personnel who provide direct instruction. Help us ensure your child's school still receives this funding by verifying your income!
