To help the accountability of students and their enrichment work, 7-12th grade teachers are now going to start putting up feedback through Powerschool like we did grades before. This feedback will NOT effect their semester grade, but it will allow families to keep track of what enrichment work your kids are doing and not doing.
7th-12th Principal LDNE
Following the recommendation from the Logan Valley Public Health Department and ESU 2, the school board took action at a special board meeting and will not plan on reconvening school through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. If the health department changes their assessment of the situation, the board will consider reopening. As of right now, plan on not returning to school unless you hear otherwise.
Enrichment opportunities will continue. Please remind your children to check their emails and online platforms.
At this time, all students grades for 3rd quarter will determine their second semester grade. With that being said, administration will use 3rd quarter grades, 4th quarter enrichment opportunities/completion and MAP tests to determine what classes 7th-12th graders will be in next year.
We are continuing to work on what graduation will look like for 2020.
This situation is fluid and could change.
