What does this mean?

-Office Hours lasts all week or for as long as your grade is at or below 69%.

-Teachers may also assign day-to-day office hours if a student is missing an assignment.

-Office Hours is for everyone. Students do not need to be at or below 69% in a class in order to attend Office Hours. Any student may attend for extra help or to work on class work.


How do I know if I have Office Hours?

-Every Monday morning students with 69% or lower in one or more classes log onto Power Hour. The link is available on the Millennium High School home page. If a student misses two or more Office Hours during the week he/she may have a conference with a counselor or administrator. The second time they miss two or more Office Hours in a week the student can be assigned to Overdrive.
