Our school has partnered with TutorMe to provide personalized learning support for every student. We believe that every student should have a sidekick in learning, and TutorMe is helping us achieve that goal! With on-demand tutoring, students can access one-on-one, live tutoring and writing support anytime, anywhere.
Personalized Learning Support
Tutoring is available 24/7 and is accessible through Clever.
The TutorMe award-winning Lesson Space replicates all the best parts of in-person learning – including face-to-face collaboration through optional live audio and video. This is especially ideal if your student feels more confident and productive in a virtual setting!
TutorMe’s thriving community of tutors includes thousands of certified teachers, professionals, advanced-degree holders, and other subject matter experts – all of whom have been thoroughly vetted and background-checked.
Paper and Essay Review
In addition to live tutoring sessions, students also have access to paper and essay review services through the TutorMe Writing Lab. The community of writing tutors delivers prompt, detailed feedback on submissions within hours, helping students polish papers and hone their writing skills for future assignments. Have your student submit their next writing assignment to help them get feedback before they get graded.
Please make sure your child knows of their transportation arrangements each day. If a change needs to be made, please contact the school BEFORE 2:00 so we can get the message to your child. Contacting the school after 2:00 does not guarantee that your child will get the message.
Car Rider Reminders
1. Car riders should exit the building using the front doors.
2. Students should enter the vehicle once it has pulled up to the sidewalk area. If you do not see your student, please continue to move forward so we can keep the line moving.
3. Students should not be walking across the parking lot or the grassy area to get to a car that is not yet to the sidewalk. This causes a significant safety concern!
4. Drivers, please drive slowly, follow the flow of traffic and be patient!
Student safety is of utmost importance! Please help us keep our students safe by following these guidelines.
What is PBIS?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, tiered framework for supporting students’ behavioral, academic, social, emotional, and mental health. When implemented with fidelity, PBIS improves social emotional competence, academic success, and school climate. It also improves teacher health and wellbeing. It is a way to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives.
