Important information 

Progress reports should be sent home after the third week of the six weeks grading period.  If you do not receive one, or your child did not receive one, please contact the Counselor’s office.

24 hour notice should be given before a parent/teacher conference can be scheduled.  We encourage parents to meet with the teacher during their preparation if at all possible.

If your child is absent only one day, we ask that you allow them to get make-up work when they return to school with a written excuse from you or your doctor. 

Please give the teachers until the end of the school day before you pick up missed work assignments in the Guidance Office.  It takes awhile to compile the work from each teacher. 

Contact the Guidance Office if your child has any illness/condition that should be noted on his/her permanent records.  If school personnel should be made aware of this, the counselor will do so, otherwise this and all other information will be held with strict confidentiality.
