Start of the Fourth Marking Period-The marking period starts on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. We all have an opportunity to start and finish the marking period strong by completing and submitting assignments by their due dates and by having assignments graded and updated in gradebooks in a timely manner.


Reporting Student Absences -It is very important that we maintain proper attendance records on all students – in-person and virtual.  Whether your student is scheduled in-person or virtual, please call the front office and ask for Mrs. Burke to report an absence. Mrs. Burke may also be reached by email at   In-person students may remain virtual on their scheduled days in the building if need be – again, please call the school and let us know that your child is scheduled to be in the building but will attend virtually that day.  This helps us keep accurate records of who is and who is not in the building during the event of an emergency.  Your support is much appreciated.
