****Please hand in public school acceptance letters. I must advise you that when you enter the 2nd round you
must give up the seat that has been assigned to you. Therefore, If you are not successful in getting into the program of your choice in the second round, (
I must advise you that there are limited choices in the second round) you will be given a seat in your zoned school. Be very thoughtful of the choice you are making to give up that seat.
*****To all seventh and eighth grade parents- For those students who are absent, you must be proactive in calling a classmate in the morning and asking them to get your work. Just telling the office to send home assignments with a sibling is not sufficient. In the seventh and eighth grade there is substantial work, I should say much more than substantial work, done during the day that your child is missing. We are having discussions that lead to questions that will appear on future tests. We are brainstorming math strategies that your child is missing. Since technology is a very big part of all our lives, it is paramount that your child ask a friend to snapshot a picture of the notes that were given and written about during the time that your child is absent, especially students who miss a week or more of school. Have a buddy who will collect all your worksheets and assignments. It is a reciprocal relationship. You will take notes for them when they are absent and they will help you out when you are absent. Your child cannot be successful in school if they are not consistently in school.

I am not forgetting all those who worked in the initial stages of the chariot who gave ideas.
