4th Quarter Begins

4th Quarter Begins

Printer Friendly Version

April 3, 2022




I hope you have enjoyed the first full weekend of April.  Tomorrow we begin the first day of the 4th quarter.  In two weeks, we will break for April vacation and essentially return for the last week of April.  My point is that as we begin our 4th quarter we enter a time of year that will be busy with end of year activities that when coupled with remaining vacations and a holiday weekend in May, will go extremely fast and be packed with much to do and easy distractions.


Students are encouraged to establish consistent routines and communication with their teachers and FLEX block opportunities to best support their academics and success in their courses.  We want all students to have a positive and successful 4th quarter with their academics as well as participation in the many end of year activities. 


Have a great week.

If Sick / Please Stay Home

The lifting of COVID safety guidelines has certainly been a welcome.  However, it is still important to be aware that COVID is still amongst  us as are other illnesses that can cause people to get sick and miss school / work. Please remember to remain home if you are not feeling well.  Yes, we want you in school and yes, we have an attendance policy ,but we also want people to use their best judgment to stay home when they are not feeling well and may have an illness which could spread to others.   If students have concerns with staying home and our attendance policy please contact a school administrator, we will work with you and our policy to ensure a safe school.
