We Are In The Final Stretch.............

Students and Families...


Please go into IC and complete any missing/final assignments needed so that you can earn the very best grades possible in ALL your classes.


The final day to turn in any work to your teacher is Thursday, June 4th!


The District Grading Plan has been designed with flexibility/grace/understanding for all our students and families during this time:


Students will earn a grade in their classes A, B, C, D, or F. Teachers will mark the letter grades in IC. As of June 8th, the district will be going in and making a mass change. Any D's earned will turn to CR. Any grades of an F will turn to an NC.


Grades will be posted for all students/parents to see in IC as of June 8th. Please go in and check your grades. For any questions with grades, please email your teacher directly. Teachers assign grades and will have the answers and information regarding grades assigned.


Students will have the decision to change any letter grade to a CREDIT (CR) which means that this grade/CR will NOT impact their Grade Point Average (GPA) calculation.


8th-grade students; June 9th and 10th, may use this link to contact their school counselor to change a letter grade to CR. Once the change is requested, the decision is FINAL.

7th graders will have the fall semester to contact their school counselor to change a letter grade to CR. Once the change is requested, the decision is FINAL.
