Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 1 Issue 38 - 6/05/22

Greetings Clipper Nation!

Our seniors are officially graduated! Oh, what a week we had last week with graduation and a visit from Jay Copeland. It was awesome!


We still have several days of school left before the summer break. Please remind your student to make sure they are in attendance each day, that they get to class on time, attend all of their classes, and that they are putting forth their best effort academically.


Students who need to register for summer schools can do so starting on June 1st. They should work with their guidance counselor to get registered. More information is below.


A reminder that our dress code is still being enforced. Attire should cover the student's shoulders, bellies, and chest. This is for males and females. Also, shorts should be longer than shirts. Please make every effort to dress appropriately for school.

Reminders

Food Pantry Drive Through June 10th from 12:30-2:00

We will have pre-made boxes of food prepared from the Maryland Food Pantry available for pick up in the front of the building. All you have to do is come to the front and pop your trunk and the box of food will be placed in your car. We hope you stop by!"

Parking

At this point in the year, anyone parking at the school should have a school parking pass sticker in their window. Students parking without a pass could end up with a sticker on their windshield. This sticker is hard to remove, so please make sure you have a parking pass. If you still need one, they are available in the front office. Only 11th graders are currently permitted to park on school grounds.

Attendance

As we approach the end of the year just a few reminders about attendance.


-Only 5 parent notes are permitted per year.

-Notes are due within 5-days of the absence.

-Will accept medical, military, MVA, job interviews, and college visits with supporting documentation for future absences to be excused.

-If a student has reached 5 or more unexcused absences, the student can sign up and attend attendance recovery (Step-Up Program) before the program ends on May 26, 2022, to avoid failing the term.

-If your student is out sick, please submit notes as soon as the student returns. Notes should be dropped off in the office or sent by email to JMBAttendance@wcboe.org.

-Please check emails (including their spam boxes) weekly for attendance emails from the school.

How do I Stay in the Know?

The best way to stay in the know is to make sure we have accurate information on file.

Make any corrections to the form in blue. If you need additional space for emergency contact use a separate sheet of paper. Sign the back of the form and return it to the school.
