Updates/Reminders

  • Grade Suppression- The NC Board of Education adopted a policy that provides students with the option to repeat a failed course, complete credit recovery, or keep the F (if it is an elective course). Students will receive a letter in homeroom that explains the process.
  • I have emailed a success contract to all of you. You can use it as an option for students who failed the third nine weeks.
  • If you have a student who is failing your class, or you write a referral for a student, you must notify the parent.
  • Please be signed in by 7:00 and at your door by 7:05 unless you have a morning duty in another location, and be at your door during class change.
  • Make sure your students are attentive during announcements, and do not let them leave when the afternoon announcements are complete. They should stay in your room until the bell rings.
  • Do not allow students to wear hats and hoods in your classroom.
