Not Again?!

Hello Raider Nation --

A short message for a short week. Happy President’s Day! I hope you enjoyed the day off.

Here we go again-- just as last week, we find ourselves in the path of inclement weather this week. Please stay tuned as decisions are made regarding after school activities tomorrow and school on Wednesday.

Due to the inclement weather last week, some events needed to be rescheduled. Please mark your calendars:

Friday, February 22 – Black History Month Program --The in-school assembly will take place during 5th and 6th periods. Seating arrangements were sent out last week.

Monday, February 25 – Rescheduled Staff Meeting (Values)

I hope you all enjoyed the Chocolate Fest provided by our PTSA. What a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

During Raider Time this week (if we are in school and on-time), meetings for Spring sports will be taking place. Please remind students to sign-up on the Raider Time website for the appropriate location.

I am keeping the information on Denial of Credit in the newsletter for your reference. Please work collaboratively with student services and administration in following protocol.

See you tomorrow!


Denial of Credit Information

As we enter the third quarter, the discussion of denial of credit may begin to surface. I want to share the Denial of Credit process that the school system has put in place. This process is intended to afford multiple opportunities for intervention for student attendance in order to avoid any student being in the position of being denied credit for a course. Teachers, counselors, and administrators are asked to take specific steps to document student and parent notification and engagement prior to requesting denial of credit from the principal. The steps in the process are:

    1. Student/Teacher Conference (one each quarter)
    2. Parent Notification (one each quarter)
    3. Denial of Credit Warning Letter sent by teacher (before end of Quarter 3)
    4. Conference held with student, parent, counselor/administrator documented in the form of a contract
    5. Denial of Credit Recommendation Form submitted to principal (3 weeks prior to last student day)
