Earth Day 2023

We would love to feature some of our students and their families for Earth Day!

Email Mrs. Knapp pictures of you doing something to help our planet- recycling, planting, etc... and you can be fetured in our Earth day post!

Students with online courses

If your student has an online course, they should be progressing at this rate:

  • Students in year long courses should be at a minimum of 75% completion
  • Students in semester courses should be at approximately 55%

If you are not sure where your student's progress is at, please ask them to log into Edgenuity and show you their progress report.

All 9th graders in HOPE have Ms. Colon monitoring their progression. If you have questions, you can reach out to Ms. Colon.

Students with other online courses: look at your student's schedule. The teacher listed as their research teacher is the teacher monitoring their progress. You can refer questions to him/her.

As a reminder, students have access to their coursework 24/7 and can complete work at any time.

School policy reminders

As we go into the 2nd half of the school year, here are some school policy reminders:

Cell phones:

Students may not have cell phones out at any point during the day with the exception of breakfast and lunch. The use of cell phones during breakfast and lunch is a privilege and it can be revoked if abused. This includes ear buds.


Students get 3 "free" tardies each quarter. After the 3rd tardy, students will begin to receive disciplinary consequences. This is for both tardies to school and to class. Tardies will reset each quarter.

Uniform infractions:

Students must be in full uniform every day. Failure to be in full uniform will result in the student being sent to the office to get into appropriate uniform dress.

Reminder regarding deliveries

As a reminder, students are not permitted to order food deliveries (student handbook, page 13). We do have a school lunch program and students may also bring their lunch.

Any deliveries will be held in the office until 3:20.

No cell phone use during the day

Please remember that students are not allowed to use their cell phones during class. Please refrain from calling/texting your student during instructional time.

Students using cell phones during instructional time will have cell phones confiscated for the remainder of the school day. Multiple infractions will result in discipline referrals.

Students may use their phones at breakfast until 8:20am and at lunch from 1:00-1:30.
