All Call 11/18/2020

Good Evening this message is for the parents of students in 6th through 12th grades.  Teachers and students are all working hard during transition to remote learning. One critical aspect of the remote learning piece is attendance.  We as a district are required to document that we have 75% of our students participating in remote learning in order to remain compliant with state requirements. To do this the staffs of the High School and Middle School are sending out emails on a weekly basis. PLEASE make sure your student or students are checking their emails and responding to the email from the teacher reaching out to them.

Also just a reminder that students should be checking the Stream Tab in Google classroom not just navigating directly to the Assignment Tab.  The Stream has valuable information the student will need before starting many of the assignments, this may clear up many of the questions students have about the assignments being given.

Stay Strong Pirates!

Chris Adams

Principal

Napoleon Middle School
