A message from Ms. Dance, 11th grade Counselor
Just a gentle reminder of the key requirements that we have discussed previously. You will need at least 11 credits to be classified as a junior/11th grade student. You must have passed all core academic classes/required electives (Health and Fitness) to be considered on track for graduation (please contact me if you have questions).
Please approach this year with a positive attitude, strive to get those stellar grades, and/or work diligently to recover from past failures.
If you need anything, I am available Monday – Friday from 8am to 3:30pm by email email@example.com, mobile phone 470.473.8260, and/or office phone 470.254.1830. You can also visit my Virtual Counseling office by clicking the link https://forms.gle/BVRF92Wg5kL6noMs8

DISCIPLINE EXPECTATIONS (English)
Potential rule infractions in a virtual learning environment include, but are not limited to, harassment, bullying, cyber bullying, technology offenses, disruption and insubordination. Please note that code of conduct rule violations can also occur in the community or when using social media inappropriately. It is important that the school is notified of any student behaviors that negatively impact the school or virtual learning environment. Furthermore, incidents of harassment, racial slurs, bigotry, derogatory comments, physical harassment, ethnically offensive behaviors or any threats of harm to others will not be tolerated and will be taken very seriously. Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, the District’s response may include disciplinary consequences up to and including long term suspension/expulsion from school. Please note any behavior that violates the FCS Code of Conduct Handbook will be addressed through our district’s discipline process.
Below are some potential discipline responses that will be utilized in the Universal Remote Learning environment include, but are not limited to, the following:
Parent Conference Suspension from synchronous learning
Restorative Practice Conference
Loss of Privileges
Virtual Drug Education Program I
Impact Lesson or project
Suspension of club/extra-curricular activities

Please know that we are committed to ensuring that all our students feel safe and ready to learn and will be providing students guidance, resources and support. Thank you for your partnership in teaching our students behavioral expectations and standards of conduct while in a Virtual Learning Environment.
