WE NEED YOUR HELP!
School has now been in session for 7 weeks and we still have many scholars who are struggling to meet basic expectations throughout the day. We need your support encouraging them to get back on track to support their learning and growth.
Please review the below and speak alongside your child this weekend to reiterate these school expectations. Expect follow-up calls to partner with so we can best support your child to get back on track.
Our school wide policy is for cell phones to be powered down and left in their personal lockers for the entire school day.
We understand that prior to the start of this new school year scholars had unlimited access to their cell phones and these devices offered them virtual connections with their family and friends. However NOW is the time for them to disconnect from these distractions to allow them to be 100% engaged in their learning from 7:30-3:00pm. If there is an urgent need to communicate with your child please call the front office and we can relay a message.
Scholars found to be using their cell phones during instructional time will be asked to hand over their phone by a member of Admin. Depending on their mis-use of this policy we will ask family members to come and retrieve their phones at the end of the day.
We gave EVERY scholar a brand new Lenovo Chromebook at the beginning of the year. Many scholars are forgetting this Chromebook at home or forgetting to charge overnight.
Last year our scholars took charge in changing our dress code policy to allow them to show their unique personality off without having to be restricted by a uniform.
Click here to ensure you understand expectations we have in regards to our dress code. Many of our scholars have required several reminders to remove their hood off their heads while inside the building. Also several of our female scholars have been wearing shirts that expose their stomaches.
To support student attainment and growth, every instructional minute is critical to accelerate their growth. For some scholars we have seen a very high percent of tardy rates as well as requests to use the bathroom passes multiple times in one class.
