Make Up School To Start this Saturday!
The State Department of Education has reinstated the Seat Time Policy for the 2021-2022 school year. This means that FA's (Failure due to absences) have returned as well. Students who have been absent more than 6 times from a class, will need to attend Make Up School in order to receive credit for the class. The only absences that do not count towards the 6 absences are those absences directly related to COVID, where the nurse communicated a need to quarantine or isolate or students out for a school sponsored trip/activity
Make Up School sessions are $20 per session. The dates for make up school are as follows:
October 16th 8:00am- 4:00pm
October 20th 4:00pm-7:00pm
October 27th 4:00pm- 7:00pm
November 3rd 4:00pm-7:00pm
November 6th 4:00pm-7:00pm
November 17th 4:00pm-7:00pm
December 1st 4:00pm-7:00pm
December 8th 4:00pm-7:00pm
December 18th 8:00am-4:00pm
Mrs. Gamble will begin notifying students on 10/4 if they need to attend Make Up School. She will be sending Canvas messages to students with the number of hours that they will need to make up. Failure for students to make up this time, will result in them not receiving credit for the course.
If you have any questions concerning Make Up School, please contact Mrs. Gamble (803-980-2116 or email@example.com)
