Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences will be virtual on March 1. Parents you can now sign-up through School Bookings. Please leave yourself 10 minutes between bookings so you don’t miss the beginning of your next appointment with teachers. Teachers will be using the waiting room feature to keep the process moving. To sign up go to the following link: https://www.schoolbookings.net/book/step1?z=I7R0K4

Attendance Reminder

As a reminder, students are allowed 12 total absences (excused or unexcused) per semester before the absences negatively impact grades. We have noticed an increased number of students going on vacations during the school year. Please remember that our video conferencing option is intended for Covid related students that are isolated, quarantined, or symptomatic. Refer to the Attendance Information

Flex Time

This week we brought back Flex Time. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the schedule is slightly adjusted. The Flex Schedule can be found on the Daily Schedules form.

Scheduling Information

This year students will be scheduling classes for the 2021-2022 school year online through PowerSchool. Students have been given several resources to assist them in this process and we encourage families to review these resources carefully before making course selections. If students have further questions after thoroughly reading through each document, they will have an opportunity to sign up for Flex time with a counselor. High School Counselors will not be pulling students from class to have scheduling conversations, but will be reviewing each student's course selection to ensure prerequisites have been met and students are on track to meet graduation requirements. Below is a link to the parent presentation as well as the student presentation that was viewed during Flex time today. The final deadline for submitting course requests is March 18.
