No After School Study Table TODAY.
This morning you will be called by grade to the Commons to pick up a letter for your parents explaining tomorrow’s standard improvement day. If you receive a gold letter you are excused from attending school tomorrow. If you receive a purple letter it is because you have work that needs to be done for your teacher or you owe detention minutes. The classes and the minutes owed will be listed on your letter. If for some reason you have a purple letter and your teacher has decided you no longer need to attend tomorrow you can have the teacher sign off on the letter. If you are able to fix all the classes on the purple letter then bring it Mrs. Carlson, Mrs. Toenjes, Mr. Lambert, Mrs. Young or Mrs. Stenger. They will exchange your purple letter for a gold one to take home.
Tomorrow 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.
