Looking Forward 1/25/21

Schedule for this week

Monday is an A day (ABABA week).

Traditional students are expected to attend school each school day or they will be marked absent.  Masks must be worn and social distancing should be practiced to the extent possible.  Desk shields are provided in each classroom.

Virtual students are required to participate in live classes or will be marked absent. All students participating online should have cameras on so they can be active participants in the lesson. Recordings of each class will be posted online, but lack of participation in live classes can affect a student’s ability to exempt exams at the end of the semester. 

Students who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should remain home from school and seek medical treatment. Symptoms include new cough, new loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever or chills, muscle or body aches, headaches, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue. Absences due to COVID quarantine and COVID positive are marked using special attendance codes in INow so they do not count against the student.  Please submit notes promptly for all absences to Ms. Lightfoot. 


Students who registered for the PSAT should report to the Theater Lobby on January 26th at 8:30 a.m.


All Seniors who have not earned a College and Career Readiness Indicator will be required to take the ACT WorkKeys on February 2nd at school. These students will be contacted this week.  Any Senior who wants to take the WorkKeys test to earn industry certification may opt to take the test on February 2nd. Please email Mr. Sims if you would like to register for this test.   

School Pictures

School portraits will be taken in the Theater Lobby on February 2 and 4 for 9th through 11th grade students. Teachers should get their portraits taken sometime before 11:45 on either of these days. Social distancing should be maintained, and masks should be worn at all times while waiting and up until the photographer has each student lower their mask.  No students (traditional or HVA) should attend if they have been exposed to someone with COVID or are currently exhibiting any symptoms.
