Do I have to attend school everyday?

Students MUST attend school EVERYDAY. If students do not attend at least 90% of the time during the school year and if he/she has more than 5 absences per class per semester, the student will lose credit and truancy charges may be filed.

How do I login to Google Classroom if I forgot my password?

If you are having trouble login on to your account, you can use your regular username, however your password will be the lowercase p and your numerical id afterwards.

  • Username:
  • Password: p(student id)
  • For example: a student with an ID of 123456 would have their password reset to p123456.

What if I need help after class is over?

Teachers will be available everyday from 2:45 - 4:00 pm to assist students with any questions students might have regarding their assignments.

Does the Covid Incomplete still apply to 2020-2021?

The Covid Incomplete (CI) is NO LONGER AN OPTION for the 2020-2021 school year. All students must follow the regular grading policy that has been adopted by the district.

What are my expectations as a student?

  • Contact campus if experiencing technology issues;


  • Request Chromebook and/or Hot Spot to ensure connectivity;

      • For synchronous learning activities, students' regular schedule will be followed for the class to come together and conduct instruction/lecture and work in pairs, small groups, and/or all together.

      • During asynchronous learning, students will be able to progress at their own pace through the content. Teachers will contact students as needed to ensure progress is being documented and to be used as a resource for learning.

  • During virtual learning and after 4:00 pm, contact may be made with the teacher however, response may happen the following day;

  • Complete assignments and communicate with teachers as needed
