Students will no longer be going to summer school to make up work they did not finish during the school year. Rather, at the end of each ranking quarter, students who did not complete all their work for the quarter, will be staying after school from 2:30 to 5:00 PM to make it up. Parents will be notified if their child needs to stay, and transportation will be provided.
Changing Students’ Destinations
If you wish to change the destination of your child at the end of the day, we ask that you call before 1:00 PM if possible. Presently, the office is being flooded with calls after 2:00 PM, and it makes it hectic and confusing to insure that every student gets these messages. Any calls received after 2:25 PM probably will not get to your child as they are already loading buses at that time. Thanks for your understanding.
