Congratulations Mr. Kelley!

Congratulation to Mr. Cory Kelley, our Cambridge Crest of Honor recipient for December. A pandemic did not stop Mr. Kelley from bringing theater to the Cambridge community with two theatrical productions this fall. Cambridge Theatre created unique and magical experiences with The Occurrence at Sleepy Hollow and Drive-Thru Christmas Caroling, bringing the spotlight on our program and our talented students.


Thank you, Mr. Kelley, for bringing theater to our students and the community during a time when we need it the most.

Student Absences

  • During the second semester, attendance will be taken by the teacher for all students each class period, including advisement.

  • In the F2F setting, teachers will mark students who are physically in class as present. In the remote setting, when the class is being taught synchronously, the teacher will mark students who log in and actively participate as present. Please talk to your teacher if you have any questions regarding participation in class as a remote student.


When absences do occur, parents and guardians (only) can submit the Student Attendance Form to report that absence to the school.
