We are approaching the end of our first semester and we want to remind you to encourage your student to finish strong! For many of our 9th grade students, this will be the first time that their grades will show up on their High School Transcript. We have a tutoring schedule to support students and each day of the finals will end in a Flex Period. Flex periods are the times set aside for your student to work with individual teachers to finish coursework, take or redo tests, and to check in with support staff.


Teachers will be using Friday, January 27th to grade student work and enter grades. There will be no school for students.
