Getting the Message out!

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Starting immediately, we will begin to strictly enforce our unexcused tardy and early withdrawal policy. Upon 3 tardies and/or early withdrawals, your student will be required to serve after school detention. Tardies and early withdrawal will automatically be marked as unexcused. A medical excuse must be returned to your student's teacher or the school office in order to be marked excused. All other tardies and/or early withdrawals must have principal approval requested by letter in order to be excused.
