CLASS OF 2020 PARENTS
IMPORTANT - ACTION REQUIRED FOR PARENTS OF 2021 - 2024 STUDENTS!
With the uncertainty regarding how "school will look" as we continue through the COVID pandemic, it is more important than ever to take care of signing the computer permission forms! The Technology User Agreement for the 2020-2021 school year is now LIVE in the Family Skyward account - NOT THE STUDENT account. There are three items which need to be checked and the date added to complete. A step-by-step instructional is below. Should you have problems, please contact Stephanie Thompson firstname.lastname@example.org or Carrie Harvey email@example.com for assistance.
Last Friday is the last time we will send an "all school" Skyalert regarding this task. Next Friday, families with signed forms will be removed from the list!
MISSING COMPUTERS, TEXTBOOKS, CALCULATORS....
COLLEGE BOARD - AP QUESTIONS!
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR ANY STUDENT
We are inviting any student to assist with lunch distribution during the summer. Chief Nicholls will be there to support students. ORHS will be a distribution point for any child in Oak Ridge under the age of 18 to receive a free meal. Students will be provided masks and gloves; however, if a student has their own mask, please feel free to wear it. Signup today!
IMPORTANT TNPROMISE INFORMATION!
Due to current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution the Tennessee Higher Education Commission/Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (THEC/TSAC) has made the decision to waive the July 1 community service requirement. A Tennessee Promise student enrolling at an eligible institution for the fall 2020 term will not be required to complete and submit community service to maintain eligibility.
THEC/TSAC will continue to monitor the impact from COVID-19 on our state to determine any additional accommodations which may become necessary in the fall semester and beyond.
If you have questions regarding this decision, please let me know or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RSCC - MIDDLE COLLEGE GRADUATION PLANS!
The college has announced that plans are being made to hold our graduation ceremonies Saturday, July 25. Roane State will be sending an email out this coming Tuesday, May 26 on this development. The specific details are being, and will continue to be, worked out as we determine the number of students who wish to attend and the number of guest allowed according to CDC and TBR guidelines.
For Middle College graduates, we will participate as a group in the 2:00 service. If this arrangement should change, we will adjust accordingly as a group. Please keep this in mind as you submit if you plan to participate in the ceremony.
CONGRATULATIONS CADET THORNBURGH!
