Freshman Athletics Survey
Hello Class of 2024! The coaches at Lakeridge High School are excited to have you a part of our programs next school year and wanted to provide you an opportunity to get connected with programs that you may have an interest in joining. We have created an online questionnaire that you can use to provide your contact information with our coaches and advisors. Complete the form and I will share your information with the selected programs. The coaches will then be in touch to provide you with program information and should be available for questions that you may have. Here is the link to the questionnaire again: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSch-sRz55T7TPUmo9cUyS4HOX9_rcHKcEWlJjUpq3sUu175tg/viewform?usp=sf_link. Go Pacers!
Routine and Repeated Reminders
End of Year Recognition & Awards
Ensuring that schools have accurate information to reach parents and other contacts in both emergency and non-emergency situations. Verification is important even if your contact information has not changed over the past year because the school may have incorrect information from a previous year.
Allowing parents to review the health conditions on file at your student's school.
Enabling distribution of electronic devices covered by the district's Technology Agreement
Updates to ParentVue/StudentVue Grades
It is hard to believe we are almost in May! I appreciate the feedback we have been receiving, and we are working hard to make adjustments with our process to serve our students best.
This week you will begin to see in Synergy a report showing whether your child participated in classes each week. Each Monday evening, we will update Synergy, and if your child has a P, then they were engaged in our work from the previous week. If they have a blank, then they did not participate in that class for the whole week. In cases where we have no engagement, we will be reaching out to you and your child to determine what supports are needed to re-engage. Overall course grades will display as N/A because we want students to focus on staying engaged and connected without stressing about overall grades. At the end of year, students who have been engaged will receive "P" grades consistent with guidance from the Oregon Department of Education.
It is an excellent practice to always check the school-wide planner for assignments and to refer to Google Classrooms for specific assignments.
Use this button to go directly to our schoolwide planner, which is updated by the end of day each Monday as a resource for students and parents.
