October News second edition
Hoosier Indy - October 2020
A Note From Your Principal
Wow!! This year is really flying by! I hope everyone was able to take the few days for fall break to rest, relax, enjoy the weather and spend quality time with family! We have seven (7) weeks left in the first semester. Please help your student focus on completing lessons, attending class connect sessions, and completing MindPlay and Ascend requirements. We want to finish the semester out strong, and keep up the amazing work your children have been doing! If there are any concerns or questions about class content, please contact your teacher as soon as they arise so we can address in a timely manner. If your student will be absent, please report the absence to our attendance line. All absences will be unexcused unless accompanied by a doctor's note, K12 helpdesk ticket number, or communication from our attendance specialist.
