Ninth Grade Parents

We are working on a solution to locking up IPads here in the building when they are not in use, such as PE class, or heading to a sports activity.  Since information will be stored in the cloud, and students can retrieve it from anywhere, we are advising that it may be best to leave the IPads here at school so that we can check them in and lock them up when not in use.  In the meantime, we are loading Apps and getting them ready for use.

We are planning to have a meeting for those who still have questions, concerns, or want to know more at some point next week.  In the meantime, if you have questions, please email and let us know.  This is a new experience for us, more detailed and complicated than we thought when we started out, but less so as we set up and get ready.  We want the program to be successful, so we are proceeding at a pace that I know is slow for the students, but which, upon the advice of others who have entered this realm, is exactly what is needed to avoid the problems and pitfalls that come with this type of change.  Thank you for both your cooperation, and your patience.  It will be worth it, I think, in the long run.

Student Drivers

Students who want to drive to school need to fill out a student driver parking permit form(available in the office) and return it to the transportation coordinator, Mr. Coomber.  Please have these to the office by September 5th.

Parking Lot Reminders

Mr. Coomber is requesting that large vehicles not park in the parking spaces along the side of the church.  These vehicles stick into the entrance lane and there is not a lot of room with business coming in and parents in the drop off.

The space in front of the school is a designated no parking area.  Please do not use this area for parking as it interferes with the buses coming in and picking up students for games and field trips.

For parents dropping off students, please do not let your children out in the entrance lane.  This is a safety concern as the buses are coming in.  Please pull to the right of the main entrance and let your children out there.
