Principal's Message

Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

The grades for this grading period have been posted. Please check your student's grades in ParentVue and have your student check their grades in StudentVue as well. We only have five weeks of school remaining for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Our seniors only have four weeks of the school year remaining. It is very important that our students finish strong and do their best up until the final day of school. Please assist your student to finish the school year by doing his/her best. 

The Campbell End of Year Schedule in calendar form is in the attachment below. Please review it so that you are updated about the events for these last few weeks of school. 

Parents, please note that when coming to the office to check out your student or communicate with the front office staff, there is a new doorbell system.  A picture ID must be shown and there are signs to assist you. 

Message from the Attendance Office 

Excused vs. Unexcused Absences: Students are required to obtain a pass from their teacher and report to the school nurse if they are feeling ill during the instructional day.  The school nurse will contact the parent if it is determined the student should go home for the day. These absences are considered excused and coded AEC.  If a student calls/texts a parent for pick up and does not report to the clinic first, the absence from class(es) is unexcused. Students will not have the option to visit the clinic for the nurse to assess after the parent has arrived and have the absence excused.


On special occasions, all early checkouts will require a doctor’s excuse to have the absence coded excused. We encourage all students to remain in school for the full day unless they are not feeling well. We want to limit early checkouts and maximize instructional time.

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
Dr. Watkins
