Interim Progress Reports
We are approaching our first interim progress report of the year on October 15th. This means that teachers will be assigning grades based on work done from the beginning of the school year. These grades will be posted in Home Access Center. In the meantime, you can always check Schoology for the most up to date grades in each class. If you are unsure as to how to navigate this platform, you can check the Schoology resource page at this link.
The Puyallup School District has partnered with Hazel Health to offer free virtual mental and physical health services for students. All students can receive up to 6 virtual sessions. For more information, please use this link.
Drug/Alcohol Prevention Information
DEA National RX Takeback
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue.
According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019. The survey also showed that a majority of misused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
