Grades & SchoolTool

As we approach the middle of third quarter I would like to remind parents to continue to monitor your child’s grades on the SchoolTool Parent Portal. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades, please contact their teacher. If you have not logged onto SchoolTool, I encourage you to do so. You may contact Mrs. Diana Schwartz in the main office (891-4450) or schwartdia@slcs.org for instructions if you are unsure how to do so. SchoolTool affords you the opportunity to not only look at current grades but you may also monitor your child’s attendance. The third quarter ends April 5th.

As a reminder, please refer to the school calendar when you are making vacation plans. It is expected that you make your plans within the time allotted. If there are extenuating circumstances that necessitate an absence at another time, students must obtain a Prior Notice Form and submit it to me for approval. The Prior Notice Form can be picked up in the main office or can be downloaded off the SLHS website www.highschool/slcs.org. This form should be completed at least 24 hours prior to the absence.

Please visit the SLHS website to stay up to date on school activities, assignments and important dates.

Sincerely,
Joshua Dann, Principal
