No Admit List
The No Admit List is now in effect for sports events and school dances. Impacted students and parents/ guardians will receive an email each Monday if they had 5+ tardies and/or 2+ unexcused absences during the preceding week. Students on the No Admit list cannot attend any sport events during the week they are on the No Admit List and must have 4 or less tardies and 1 or less unexcused absences across a school week to not appear on the following week’s No Admit List. Please note that the No Admit list will be in effect for our Homecoming football game on September 30 and homecoming dance on October 1. Information regarding the No Admit List process can be found on this information sheet. If a student believes there are extenuating circumstances that impact their attendance for a given week, they should reach out to their Neighborhood Assistant Principal to discuss these concerns prior to purchasing tickets and/or attending a school event to determine if an exception to the No Admit List can be made.
Week 4 Progress Grades
By the end of the day on Wednesday, September 28, teachers will have posted their Week 4 progress grade to Infinite Campus. In keeping with changes the district has implemented for high school grading during the 2020-2021 school year, the purpose of the Week 4 progress grade is to give you a snapshot of where your child is currently performing in each of their courses. If your student is currently listed as having a Week 4 progress grade of I/ Incomplete, this means that they are not currently passing a class and should work with their teacher to complete missing assignments and/or redo summative assessments that they have not yet passed. If you need assistance navigating the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, be sure to watch this video: English/ Spanish.
Safety and Security
We want our schools to be safe and welcoming learning environments. Building security, incident response and threat assessments are vital components as well. We will be reviewing our Standard Response Protocol in classrooms starting the week of September 26th with our students. Please review the letters below for more information:
