Mrs. Asher’s Update

October, 2021

As we round out the first quarter of school, I wanted to share a huge thank you and a few reminders. Thank you for your continued support of Macon-Hall faculty and staff and of course the support of your children. We know that returning to school has been a huge transition for our students and we recognize the learning gaps that have taken place during virtual instruction. Our teachers are working hard every day to meet the needs of our students to help close these learning gaps.

If your child has a failing grade or missing assignments, all grade recovery options should have been offered to your child and these assignments are due this Wednesday, October 6th in order for grades to be reflected on this report card.

Please make sure your PowerSchool information is updated with current phone and email. In the event of an emergency, this is our only way to contact you.

You may be aware of a Tok Tok challenge that is going around, if not, let me share. Below is what is circulating on Tok Tok. We had 2 incidences of the September “bathroom” challenge. It is our greatest hope that we do not see the October challenge take place, if it should, SCS code of conduct consequences will be issued which include suspensions and potentially expulsions.
