Benchmarks dates for November

Please edit your calendars. We have changed our benchmark dates due to Remote Learning. Our writing benchmark will be moved to December 3 then our math and reading will be December 8 & 9. We will let you know when our Science and Studies will take place. Thanks for your patience as we make it through this ever evolving year of changes.

Remote Learning November 16-20


Parents and students: This week, November 16-20 all students are on Remote Learning. Students were given a packet from each of their teachers on Friday. If you were absent on Friday, you can find your assignments on Google Classroom. Students may use your/their phone or a device you have at home to login everyday for their warmup and their work for each class for each day. If they don't have a phone or enough data, then contact the teacher by calling, emailing, or Remind. Our staff is still working so you can pick up one outside the front door as long as you call and let us know you need a copy of the packet if you were absent on Friday (printed packets are for those who don't have access to the internet or a device to access it).
Students must engage everyday during these days with their warm up question and the assignments for all 8 periods. Their work is due by November 30 when we return to school. These assignments are for a grade and attendance.


Please call 936-348-3587 or reach out to their teachers from 8-4 through email, phone call, or Remind to help with any questions you might have about their work.
