Druid Hills High School
Week at a Glance 8/14
No Show Listing - Immediate Action Required
Please use the Google Form to list the students who have not reported to your classes. We will need this task completed by the end of the day TODAY, as our Counseling Staff is facing a tight deadline to capture no-shows in Infinite Campus.
If you are absent today, the forms for your classes must be completed by 10am Tuesday.
You must complete the form for each class you teach. Please note that a student is a no-show if you have never seen them in your class for any time period. Enter "None" if all students have reported to the class period.
This is an extremely important task in ensuring accurate Infinite Campus enrollment records and balanced class sizes. Additionally this task has CCRPI Graduation Rate and Attendance Indicator implications.
Advisement Check-In Monday - from Mr. Ingram
Friday's Fire Drill (and next Friday's drill)
- It is hard to find teachers within a sea of 1,450 people. This is why we are asking you to be the flag holders and to be towards the front of your students.
- Please note the room number on your attendance form. Make sure to make sufficient copies for your folder - you never know when an evacuation may occur.
- Thank you for taking accurate attendance and noting missing students. We have to make sure all students and staff are accounted for before the drill (or evacuation) ends.
Please contact Mr. Alexander with any questions or comments.
Solar Eclipse Monday
On Monday, August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse will be visible (weather permitting) across all of North America. The event will begin at 1:05 pm and last until 4:01 pm. The Atlanta area will be at the 97% level at approximately 2:36 pm. Totality will be as far south as north Georgia. There will be a diminished amount of light in the area. Looking directly at the event will potentially cause damage to the eyes; therefore, everyone must be cautious and adhere to the safety guidelines.
The solar eclipse is a phenomenon that directly correlates to the Georgia Standards of Excellence. We will engage students in the investigation of the solar eclipse phenomenon. These activities may include instructional lessons within all content areas, televised viewing of the eclipse, and actual viewing of the eclipse with the use of special purpose filters known as solar filters.
In effort to make this a memorable learning event for all students, the DeKalb County School District is providing solar filters (eclipseglasses and viewers) to all students and staff that are approved by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO). Since the solar filters are compliant with the ISO's safety standards, students may look at the eclipsed Sun through the filters for any length of time.
Please note that the instructional day will be from 8:10 - 4:10 on Monday. Certified staff will be permitted to leave once the first wave of school buses have left campus (around 4:25pm).
We will be providing logistical information for Monday later in the week.
Here are some documents to begin familiarizing yourself with:
To go home Tuesday during 4th period (Ms. Huffman will place copies in mailboxes):
- Parent Letter - to go home Tuesday during 4th period
- Opt-In form - to be collected by 4th period teacher
