It is important that students are here on time every day. We have seen a rise in the number of tardies in the 2nd trimester. To hold parents accountable, we have two options: Option 1 is to send tardies and absences to the County through the SARB program. Option 2 is students will receive a 15 minute detention during lunch recess. Please help students get here on time, it is not our desire to use either option.
It is important for teachers to have this space for confidentiality purposes and a place to remove themselves from the working environment. I ask that parents and students honor this space so our teachers have a place to work confidentially and in an uninterrupted environment. Thanks for your help and support.
Successful Homework Tips:
Homework is an important piece of the learning process, students learn to work independently and expand upon the knowledge they learn in class. Provide a place for students to work with no distractions, ex. TV, Computer, Toys, etc… Chunk their homework time to 15-20 minutes at a time. Keep homework time to 1 hour, unless working on a project, sometimes more time is needed.
Driving in the School Parking Lot:
Please drive carefully in the school parking lot. Slow down when students are present, and watch for any obstacles as you enter and depart the school. Stopping in the Red Zone is permitted once the bus is parked or departed. Thanks for your help and consideration.
