A message from the Junior Highs for Sixth grade students

To the Parent/Guardians of our Sixth Grade Students:

The month of February and March begins our journey of looking into the courses your students will take next school year. In the upcoming weeks, students will be presented with information regarding scheduling courses. There will be a live stream parent meeting and Q&A session to go over scheduling information with counselors and administrators, on March 1st. Families with 6th grade students going into 7th grade can join the meeting at 6:30 PM, and our families of 7th graders going into 8th grade can join at 7:30 PM. If for some reason you are unable to hop on to watch the meeting it will be recorded for families to be able to access the recording.

Please continue to monitor upcoming communications with more details and links in regards to scheduling.

Our Parent/Teacher conferences will look different this year. All conferences will be virtual through Google Meets. Middle School conferences will take place March 4 and March 9, from 4:15 - 7:45. Sign-up forms will be coming home soon.

Student Virtual Days

It is vital for student's to check in for attendance and complete all of their virtual work every day.


Each week we are reminding families that all students must log into their attendance in Infinite Campus and complete their assigned classroom work in Google Classroom daily. Interim reports have been posted, please check your student's progress in the portal to ensure that your student is completing their required work.


If your student forgets to check-in for their daily attendance, they should notify their homeroom teacher. We are asking our parents to please assist us in monitoring check-ins on virtual learning days. Parents may view their child's attendance through the Parent Portal.
