Student Bulletin Tuesday, November Day 2
Attention girls’ basketball 9 – 12 there will be a sign up meeting Thursday, November 5 in Coach Kremer’s room at 3:15.
This Friday we will be doing our mid-semester Standard Improvement Day (SID). On this day, teachers and para educators will be working with students in small group settings to facilitate learning. If you are passing all your classes, then you will not be required to attend school. However, if you have standards you need to reassess then you will be expected to come to school that day. Teachers will let you know on the brown sheet that you have them sign whether they need you to attend on Friday. On Thursday you will receive a letter to take home either informing your parents of your need to attend on Friday or informing your parents of your ability to not attend. On Friday, once you are meeting all your standards and your teacher signs you out you may leave for the rest of the day. The busses will be running their normal routes and times. Breakfast and Lunch will be served as normal.
THE GYM WILL BE CLOSED EVERY DAY DURING WIN. Ms. Lynn and Mr. Szurkowski will request you if they need you for WIN.
All students must wear a mask when entering the building. Please put your mask on before you enter the building.
