Quarter One Grades

Congratulations on completing 1st quarter of the 2020-21 school year! As we end this 1st quarter, we wanted to let you know that we will not finalize first quarter grades until the end of the first semester (December). Your student’s 1st quarter grades will be reported as In Progress. At the end of Quarter 2, both Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 grades will post to transcripts as final grades. This will allow consistent grade reporting between Thompson Connect Online (TCO) and In-Person/Hybrid learning in addition to providing accuracy with overall class rankings across our high schools.
