Dont-Give-Up

Failure notices are going out today.  If you are finding the online platform learning difficult at this time for your scholar, please keep these suggestions in mind:

–Teachers are happy to help assist your scholar.  Please reach out to your scholars’ teachers and let them know of your concerns.  Teachers are putting in round-the-clock hours to ensure your scholars’ success.  They want to see your scholar succeed!  When teachers have more than 100 scholars, they will not know there is a concern unless you reach out.

–If access to technology is a concern for your family, please know that scholars may come into the computer lab from 8 AM-12 PM Monday-Thursday.  Be aware that they are required to come in dress code including full uniform and a face mask.  If you would like to have your scholar do this, please call the front desk to reserve space.

–Hang in there!  This is a challenging time and many are finding this to be difficult.  However, it is temporary and you cannot give up.  Teachers try to be flexible, but this is not a time for assignments to be ignored.  Heritage standards of work are still being adhered to. Failure grades will result in retention in the junior high and will affect graduation progress in high school.
