I just want to remind you how important it is that all learners are present everyday for instruction either remotely and/or on-campus. Students must be present 90% of the time according to the State of Texas. Please make sure that your child logs onto his/her classes each day. Students that are remote must complete their assignments and have a passing grade at the end of each grading cycle and a combined grade of 70 or better to be promoted to the next grade level. Please be mindful of the events on the calendar posted on this newsletter as well as any updates sent via our call out system.
