Week of January 10
It is our intention to return students to the building on Tuesday, January 18 (Monday is the Martin Luther King Holiday). We are doing everything possible to make that happen, as we know in-person learning is critically important for our students.
In the meantime, this is a crucial week for students to stay engaged in their classes. The marking period will close on Friday (more information below), and students should be turning in final projects and exams for their courses.
Please remind your students that attendance is mandatory in all Zoom classes. Students are expected to be on time and remain logged in for the duration of each period.
Keystone Testing - Tuesday and Wednesday (January 11 & 12)
Buses will pick students up at their regular stops, and meals will be provided for those testing. Students will then return home following the exam at 11:00 AM each day. If you have questions about the Biology Keystone exam, please email Mr. Bell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Date: Thursday, January 13
Time: 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: Chester High Third Floor (Barkley Street Entrance)
Vaccinations: First Doses, Second Doses, and Boosters
SEMESTER ENDS FRIDAY, JANUARY 14
Marking Period Conclusion
Due to the abrupt change to remote learning, there will be an extension until Friday, January 21 before grades must be submitted by teachers. Although this may give students a few extra days to turn in assignments, please encourage them to do so by the end of this week.
Report card conferences will be held from 11:30-5:30 on Thursday, January 27. Appointments will be available in person or on Zoom. More information about conferences will be coming next week. We hope to see you then!
