Virtual students will take the assessment over zoom during their ELA period. More information about this year’s state testing can be found here.

Bottled Water Donations Needed

Meadowbrook families, as the temperatures outside continue to rise and our students are actively involved in P.E., we are asking for any donations of cases of water. Our water bottle filling stations continue to be turned on, however many students are forgetting to bring water to school. We would like to be able to provide bottled water to students. Donations will be accepted at the front office from 8am – 3pm Monday – Friday. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Attendance on Self- Sustained Learning (Asynchronous) Days

As a reminder, when students are working on self-sustained learning days, attendance is based on students logging onto Canvas. Students will be marked present when they log into each teacher’s Canvas class between the hours of 8:20am and 2:35pm. Students with 8th period have until 3:30 to log onto Canvas. As a parent, you can create a Canvas account and view each of your child’s classes. If you would like to check your child’s absence report in Parent Vue please watch this video.
