Open House and Parent Session on Vaping:
The Almond Campus will have second semester Open House for parents on Thursday, January 30, 2020, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Our staff looks forward to meeting all of our parents and/or guardians. You will have the opportunity to meet with individual teachers who will all be set up in the fieldhouse.
Also, we are inviting parents to a session on Vaping and E-Cigarettes: What Parents Need to Know. Our deans’ will lead an information session from 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the Almond Campus cafeteria. This short presentation will provide parents information on an increasing trend among students across the country.
Senior Second Semester Final Exam Exemption Information:
I want to remind seniors and their parents about our final exam policy and attendance incentive for second semester. All seniors will be required to take final exams second semester. However, they have the opportunity to be exempt if they meet the requirements of the grade/attendance incentive. The requirements to meet the incentive to be exempt from second semester finals are as follows (NEED TO MEET ALL THREE REQUIREMENTS):
- A student has five (5) or less EXCUSED absences from a class.
- A student has a B- (80%) or higher in class.
- A student has zero (0) UNEXCUSED absences.
I am optimistic that all of our seniors will strive to meet the requirements of the incentive. Please be aware that the incentive applies individually to each class second semester. A student may meet the requirement in some or all of their classes.
At the end of the day Friday, May 8, 2020, grades and attendance will be finalized in regards to the incentive. On Monday, May 11, 2020, students will be able to confirm if they met the criteria for each class that they are enrolled in and review for the final exam. As a result, if your student meets the requirements of the incentive, their last day of class will be Monday, May 11, 2020. If they need to take a final(s), they will take their final(s) on Tuesday, May 12, 2020. There is not an appeal process for the incentive as the information in PowerSchool at the end of the day Friday, May 8, 2020 will determine if the incentive has been met.

As an incentive for students who maintain perfect attendance during the school year, we draw names at the end of each month from those students who had perfect attendance and award 20 of those students’ prizes. For the month of November, we had 669 students who had perfect attendance! Congratulations to the 20 students who were randomly selected.
