Principal's Message


Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

We are encouraging our students to remain Committed and Strong to ensure their academic success as we come to the end of this semester. After the End of Course Tests our students will be taking their final examinations. We will send out final exam information next week. 

Parents who would like information presented at the Hybrid parent meetings this week may find the presentations in the attachments below. The English version is attached. The Spanish version will be attached next week. The topics are Dual Enrollment and Trade Schools. 

We encourage our parents to continue to check Parentvue and for students to check their Studentvue for constant updates on grades. Students who earn between a 60-69 in content classes will have an opportunity to retake the class in Edmentum via Course Extension. Students who earn below a 60 will have to retake the entire class in a Credit Recovery course. The counselors will assist with scheduling students. 

 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
