Principal's Message


Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

We are now at the Finish Line of this semester. We have five full days and two half days remaining. Please encourage your students remain STRONG and COMMITTED to finishing well. The final examination schedule is in the Campbell News section below.  

The presentations in English and Spanish from the Hybrid Parent Meetings are in the attachments below.  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. 
The last day to recover items from the Lost and Found is Tuesday, December 19. 
Parents are reminded that there will be no check outs on 12/18 & 12/19 during Final Examinations.  We cannot call into the classroom if your student has completed their exam. Students can be checked out between class change if they don’t have a final.
 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
