Principal Weekly Message to Grades 9-11

Posted by Scott Lyons on 5/29/2020 12:15:00 PM

Hello, Huskies (grades 9-11),


Our website is a major resource for parents and students during school closure.   All parents and guardians are invited to visit the site often for updates, especially our Remote Learning Page, Principal Messages, Student Services and Senior Page as well as the Academic Page.


The deadline for students to submit course change requests for next year is June 1.  Students can access the link from the academic page of our website under the Course Registration tab. 


AP Makeup Testing is from June 1 – 5.  Students are encouraged to read the makeup testing information on the academic page of our website, under the Advanced Placement tab.  This provides resources, instructions and support for makeup testing issues.  Ask your students to check emails often so that they can respond and confirm their exam to receive an “e-ticket” to test.


All teachers will post final numerical grades for all students by June 5.  Beginning that day, students will need to submit and return completed grade choice forms.  We will send a special announcement when and where the forms are available as well as options for returning the form.  All students will need to return the form no later than June 12. 


As a reminder, students still have time to submit assignments to teachers as an effort to increase current grades.  They need to reach out to their teachers for clarity about what they can do and when assignments are due.


Parents and guardians will receive communication via email in advance if students will be featured in the whole school awards video and has any items for pick up.  The video will be released on June 8.  Students can pick up awards items on June 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.


Yearbook pickup will be on June 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at Heritage High School.


As we prepare for closing out the school year, take note of the following dates and activities: 

June 2:  Spring sports uniform drop off from 1 pm – 3 pm at the gym patio area
