WELCOME TO SECOND QUARTER!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ALL THE HELP AND SUPPORT OF OUR STUDENTS AND OUR TEACHERS AS WE CONTINUE TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC. HERE'S TO A GREAT SECOND QUARTER!

As a reminder, due to COVID regulations, we are not allowed to accept forgotten lunch boxes during the school day. If a student forgets his/hers, he/she will be able to eat a lunch from the cafeteria.

No school on Wednesday of this week in honor of our veterans. 🎖

Last day of 1st quarter was November 6. Hello Quarter 2!

  • Grades for first quarter will count, so if your child is doing remote but has not been signing on, or has not been turning in assignments, it will be nearly impossible for them to pass first quarter. We cannot help them be successful in school if they are not participating and doing their part.
  • Final grades for first quarter will be available for viewing on Friday. Report cards will be electronic. We are not printing report cards.
  • Mr. Threadgill has announced that parents will still have the option of remote learning for 2nd quarter. HOWEVER, you are only allowed one change-of-mind. For example, if you started the year face-to-face, then went remote, your choice is remote for the rest of the year.

Due to issues with COVID regulations and other issues, we can no longer accept notes from parents requesting that students ride home with another student, whether by bus or car.

Parents of remote students... it is imperative that your child is online and in class ON TIME! Also please do not interrupt the teacher while she/he is teaching. Use the chatbox feature instead.

Unless they are ill, please have your child/ren at school every day! Absenteeism, especially chronic absenteeism, negatively affects a student's progress in school.

If a student is doing face-to-face and needs to miss a day, they are marked absent. Students are not allowed to miss a day and do their work remotely, with the expectation of being marked present for the day. It simply doesn't work that way.

Congratulations to our October Star Students!

Coming soon... updated Parent Handbook.
