Weekly Announcements - Week of 11/9

COVID-19

As COVID cases are on the rise around the United States, parents please partner with us and continue the conversations about social distancing, handwashing, and masks. Parents, if any one at your home has tested positive for COVID-19, please communicate with us and keep your child at home and follow the quarantine guidelines. Also parents, if your child is experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, please keep your child at home. If you have specific questions, contact Nurse Morris. 


 Remote Learning

*Parents, as a reminder, you are not allowed to participate in direct instruction, via WebEx. This includes being on the camera and/or making comments in the chat box. If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher. 

 

Attendance

*Parents, we will be closely monitoring attendance of our remote and traditional learners. Parents, if you selected for your child to be a traditional learner and the student is not coming to school, it will be marked as an unexcused absence. Also parents, if you selected for your child to be a remote learner and he/she is not logging in, they will be marked as an unexcused absence. We will begin monitoring for truancy for unexcused absences. Beginning 2nd Nine Weeks, we will be accounting for tardies to class. Students have 5 minutes to arrive to class. Three unexcused tardies will be referred to an administrator for disciplinary consequences. If you have a question regarding attendance, please contact our main office. 

 

Parents, school will begin @ 7:55AM. All checkouts must be completed by 2:30PM daily.

 

ThinkPad Devices

Any student that was issued a ThinkPad laptop needs to bring it back to the school with the charger as soon as possible. We will be switching out all ThinkPads for new Chromebooks. Please see Mrs. Burkholder as soon as possible. Again, we need this to take place immediately.

*No halter-tops, spaghetti strap tops. Midriff tops, or overly revealing shirts
