Supporting Student Success:


Our teachers work hard to support students academically everyday. Partnering with students and parents/guardians in this work is very important. We have two more weeks before winter break and six school weeks before the end of 1st semester. Supporting students in staying caught up on their work and turning in any missing assignments is very important not only for student learning, but also in maintaining grades that will earn credits towards graduation.


Below are some steps you can take at home to support students academically:


  • Review any missing assignments with your student by having your student login to their Skyward account. Locate the missing work and support your student in completing it. You may reach out to teachers with any questions you have.


  • Review assignments with low scores and have students ask their teachers how they can redo an assignment or retake an assessment to show their new learning to earn a better grade.


  • Arrange a time for students to get additional time and support from their teacher. Please refer to the Student Support section below in this newsletter for days of the week students can stay after school for additional support. (NOTE: If a specific day/time does not work in the student's schedule based on the teacher schedule below, please contact the teacher to find another day/time that will work).


We see our students working hard everyday and we are here to support them in their learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers if you have any question. Teacher contact information can be found in this newsletter.

REMINDER: INCLEMENT WEATHER

As the weather forecasts indicate, we may see cold weather this winter. Our Superintendent, Dr. Rumbaugh, has shared with everyone how we make the determination to delay or close schools due to ice, snow, flooding, etc.


  • Safety first! We consider the safety of our children on buses, our student drivers, families driving and walking to school, and the safety of our staff, especially our bus drivers.

  • We monitor weather patterns using multiple methods 24/7. In particular, we use a tool called Accuweather that is specifically designed to support school districts in looking ahead at weather patterns.

  • When there is a concern about school starting on time, our staff begins driving the roads throughout the district as early as 2 a.m. We take photos, check road conditions, monitor traffic, look for hazards, etc. We typically drive the roads multiple times in the early morning to determine if conditions are improving, worsening, or staying the same.

  • We strive to decide about the school day by 5 a.m. Once the decision is made, we begin communicating with families and staff. We communicate through:

    • Autodialer (via School Messenger)

    • Email (via School Messenger)

    • Website

    • Flash Alert


Predicting the weather is a challenge, and our primary goal is to ensure that the roads are safe, our campuses are easy to navigate, and the weather does not impede a safe school day.

REMINDER: Chromebooks

It is important that students come to school with their Chromebooks fully charged everyday. Please make sure Chromebooks are plugged in every evening so that they will not need to be charged during the school day. Students will then not need to bring their Chromebook charger to school and risk losing it.


If you are having any troubles with your Chromebook not charging or the keys are not correct, please refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
