ATTENTION STUDENTS AND PARENTS
I can’t believe the end of the semester is approximately a month away. With that in mind, over the Thanksgiving holiday, I would appreciate you looking at your or your student’s attendance on PowerSchool and be gathering any excuses. If you cannot or do not have access to your PowerSchool account, students, please see the help desk, and parents, please see Mrs. Oswald in the front office. Please do not wait until the last week of school to turn in excuses as this is a very busy time in the attendance office. The last day I will be accepting excuses for the semester will be December 16. The only excuses accepted after then will be for absences on December 17, December 18 and December 19. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Stephanie Burgess, Attendance Administrator
Parents: Students will NOT receive a printed copy of interim grades on November 21. You may view your child’s grades through PowerSchool. Your login information is available at the front office between 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. If you do not have access to a computer, please contact your child’s teachers.
