Reminder of COVID Protocol Assignment Expectations

FJH Family,

I just wanted to remind you of the expectations when a student is out for COVID Protocol.

Students are expected to complete all work while out. We grade for mastery and will make every attempt to ensure equity in that policy. This means if a student shows mastery on one assignment that could count for a missing assignment we will do our best to ensure that happens. This is at the teacher's discretion.

Students are not "exempt" from any work.

All assignments can be found in the student's google classroom. Teachers are not expected to email individual students their assignments. The teacher will field emails with questions regarding the assignments within 24 hours of receiving the email.

Thanks for your attention and support as we work through the ever changing world of education. I want you to know your teachers are working VERY hard to ensure you get the best education possible.

Week at A Glance

FJH Family,

Progress reports were mailed out on Thursday. Many students have fixed grades, but please check skyward to see. We wanted you to have a paper copy this time to ensure you saw it. We will not be doing this for every progress report, but grades can always be found in skyward. A video on how to check is at the bottom of this newsletter.

Please make sure you wear your ID at all times and have it on and showing when you enter the building.
