Dear K-5 Staff:
As we approach the end of the school year just a reminder that all grades need to be entered into OnCourse for the 4th marking period by Tuesday, June 21 at the end of the school day. Final report cards will be made available to parents on Tuesday, June 28. If you would like to print out your report cards so that you can see your students third making grades/indicators/comments when completing your 4th marking period grades/indicators/comments attached you will find instructions on how to print them out. See the attachment that provides instructions on how to view/print out report cards. As always if you run into any issues please submit a helpdesk ticket (firstname.lastname@example.org)
4th and 5th Grade Teachers:
Please make sure you review your grades to ensure there are no numerical grades over 100 for the marking period. We realize students receive letter grades however if you have a numerical grade over 100 you should complete a grade override and change it to 100 in your gradebook. See screenshots in his email for both the new gradebook or old one. Just type in 100 in the override box.
