A Message From the Assistant Principal


You will notice on your child's progress report that there is a NC for a No Credit in French. That has been given to all

students due to Madame Lewis being out during this grading period. There will also be a blank in the conduct column.

The only options for conduct are S, N, and U. Since the kids were not seen by Madame Lewis, we decided to leave that column blank. Please contact me if you have any questions.
