Update on Assignments for UnderclassmenPosted by Dawn Meehan on 5/5/2020
As we begin to close the 2019-20 school year, we would like to notify parents and students that no new assignments will be issued for high school underclassmen as of May 15, 2020. Starting Monday, May 18, 2020, and through the remainder of the school year, students may continue completing and submitting assignments and receive additional support and assistance from their teachers as needed. Services and support for students with special needs and support for English Learner students will continue. We will make arrangements for students to turn in devices, textbooks, and other school-owned items, as well as to pick up personal items, awards, yearbooks, etc. and announce those dates and times shortly. The last day of school for students is June 3. As always, please contact Mr. Rich at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school and leave a message if you have any questions. Thank you!
