We’re happy to address some of your most frequently asked questions about our school here. You can also find information about school policies in the student handbook. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions or comments.
Parents can monitor their child’s academic progress (grades and completion of assignments) by accessing his/her information on the district’s online student information portal. We will provide students and parents log-in information at the beginning of each new school year. This information will include procedures and passwords for accessing student information related to grades, attendance, and discipline. Please direct questions regarding student attendance to Mrs. Lynch. Parents and students who believe the grade information in the student information portal is inaccurate should contact the teacher of record. If your concerns are not resolved after contacting the teacher, please contact Mrs. McMahon-Vargas.
If your child must miss school, please call the school office before 8:30 a.m. on the day of his/her absence. For information about attendance requirements and what qualifies as an excused absence, please refer to our student handbook.
Early releases from school should be for urgent reasons such as medical appointments, court appointments, etc. We will excuse a student early with a written, signed note from his/her parent/guardian that indicates the reason for the early dismissal, the time, and the date.
We prefer that students do not take their medication during school hours because of the numerous problems it can create. We encourage parents to schedule medications outside school hours whenever possible. If your child needs to take any medication (example: pill, inhaler, nebulizer med, EpiPen) during the school day, the school nurse requires a physician’s order and parent/guardian signatures for prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and herbal remedies. A parent/guardian must deliver all medications to the school. Students may not transport their own medication to school. If you have any questions concerning medication for your child, please contact the school nurse.
The administration, faculty, and staff respect the right of every student to express himself/herself in unique and individual ways. That said, we expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. The dress code is one of many expectations that assist in maintaining an environment conducive with high standards of academic performance and appropriate social interactions between students. The administration, faculty, and/or staff may question a student’s dress and take necessary action to enforce this policy, which deems the following clothing and accessories are inappropriate for school:
For more specific examples of acceptable vs. unacceptable school attire, please refer to our student handbook.
Students can access the Internet for homework and school-related research from our computer lab, library, and some classrooms under the supervision of qualified school personnel. We expect our students to behave responsibly on school computer networks.
