• How does the rotating schedule work?
     
    The days are divided into A, B, C, and D.  Each day looks like this:
     
    A   1, 2, 3  LUNCH   5, 6, 7
     
    B   4, 1, 2  LUNCH   8, 5, 6
     
    C   3, 4  1  LUNCH   7, 8, 5
     
    D   2, 3, 4  LUNCH   6 ,7, 8
     
    Each period is 56 minutes long, except for lunch which is 40 minutes.  The first
    class begins at 7:50 a.m. and the school day concludes at 2:31 p.m.  There are
    music classes that meet after school and the Select Choir meets at 7 a.m.  All
    sports' practices start at 3:15 p.m.  The school year started on an A day and the
    letters keep cycling until the last day for students, which is June 23rd, a C day.
    If there is an emergency school closing, the schedule moves on to the next letter.
    What is the Help Desk and when is it open?
     
    The HELPDESK is located in Room 606, across from the cafeteria.  Students should
    go there when their laptops are not functioning properly.  It is best to go for help
    as soon as anything appears to be malfunctioning.  If the technicians cannot fix
    the computer immediately, a student will receive a loaner until the original laptop
    can be repaired.  Helpdesk hours are:
         7:15-7:45 a.m.
         10:48-11:48 a.m. (Lunch)
         2:31-3:15 p.m.
     
     
    What is a progress report?
     A progress report is intended to let you know if your child is having difficulty in a subject, or is in danger of failing for the quarter or the year.  The report can also tell you if your child's attendance is poor or if he/she is often late to class and/or school.  Progress report are available at the  midpoint of each marking period.  This year, reports will not be mailed, but you can look for them in the parent portal of Genesis on the following dates:  October 5, 2011, December 20, 2011, March 6, 2012, and May 22, 2012.  However, since you can seek how your child is doing at any time, you are urged to check the teachers' online gradebooks at least once a week.

    What should I do if my child is being bullied or teased?
    Bullying/teasing are very serious and it is important that you and/or your child report this to the Principal or an Assistant Principal.  All information that you provide is confidential and the victim's name will not be given to the bully.  Each child has the right to a safe school environment, and we are committed to ensuring that.  Please report all instances of bullying and teasing.
