How Do I Know If I Am In Good Standing?

Eligibility checks are done every two weeks throughout the school year to determine whether or not a student is in good standing. To be in good standing, a student cannot have any Fs or have an attendance rate lower than 90%.

If you are not in good standing when the eligibility check is done, you are not allowed to participate in or attend extra-curricular activities.

The next check will be done Monday, November 21, 2022.

Good Standing

To be considered a student in good standing, a student must not be in violation of the attendance policy, have outstanding discipline referrals OR appear on the current F list.

In order to participate in extracurricular events including (but not limited to): dances, field trips, school-sanctioned sports events; a student must be in good standing.

Students in grades 6-12 that are not in good standing will have closed lunch and be required

to sign in daily in the cafeteria.

Field Trips

This year, teachers are encouraged to plan their filed trips earlier in the school year to avoid bus scheduling conflicts in the spring. Spring time tends to be so busy with many activities and it is nearly impossible to find a date to schedule a bus.

Teachers are currently planning trips and sharing that information with parents. Here are the trips that are currently scheduled:

  • December 2-- 7th grade-- MORENet Interactive Lab/Level Up

Box Tops For Education

All you need is your phone! Download the Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then use the app to scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase.
