Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 1 Issue 39 - 6/012/22

Greetings Clipper Nation!

This might just be the last newsletter of the school year. We are down to one full day of school and three early dismissals.


We are planning to have interests based flex options for next school year. A link has been posted in their grade level Google Classroom. Students are asked to complete the form and select their top three interests for the next school year. https://forms.gle/MFvJW73JmUgLcjj68


Over the summer, we will be working to create student schedules. To ensure students are being put into the courses they selected, please encourage your student to review their course requests. Directions about how to view them are below.


Teachers will be submitting grades by the end of the day on the 16th, and report cards will go live on the 21st.


Students who need to register for summer schools can do so starting on June 1st. They should work with their guidance counselor to get registered. More information is below.


A reminder that our dress code is still being enforced, clothing should cover the student's shoulders, bellies, and chest. This is for males and females. Also, shorts should be longer than shirts. Please make every effort to dress appropriately for school.


Have a wonderful summer!


Principal Savage

*Attendance

As we approach the end of the year just a few reminders about attendance.


-Only 5 parent notes are permitted per year.

-Notes are due within 5-days of the absence.

-Will accept medical, military, MVA, job interviews, and college visits with supporting documentation for future absences to be excused.

-If a student has reached 5 or more unexcused absences, the student can sign up and attend attendance recovery (Step-Up Program) before the program ends on May 26, 2022, to avoid failing the term.

-If your student is out sick, please submit notes as soon as the student returns. Notes should be dropped off in the office or sent by email to JMBAttendance@wcboe.org.

-Please check emails (including their spam boxes) weekly for attendance emails from the school.

*Notes From the Nurse

All medications in the nurse’s office will need to be picked up by a parent or guardian prior to June 16th. Any medications that are not picked up by this date will be disposed of according to the WCBOE policy.

How do I Stay in the Know?

The best way to stay in the know is to make sure we have accurate information on file. Please look over all the information on the Student Personal Data and Enrollment Information Form as this is the information we currently have on file for you. Make any corrections to the form in blue. If you need additional space for emergency contact use a separate sheet of paper. Sign the back of the form and return it to the school. If you prefer to fill out a new form you can find a copy on our website.
