    November 2018 

    A recent article in Time magazine opens up a discussion about smart phone use and teenage brain development and behavior.  The bottom line is that parents should monitor their children’s cell phone usage, data, and accessibility.  Setting ground rules and expectations are very important.  As I clearly stated at freshman orientation this year in my parents’ meeting, smart phones can be very helpful, but they can also lead a teenager down a dangerous path. 

    We are well into the second nine weeks grading period, grades from the first grading period have been posted on line, and students and teachers are continuing to work hard.  Please remember that only students in Level 2, 3, and 4 classes will be taking final exams in those classes.  Those final grades are determined by the combination of the first nine weeks’ grade (40%), the second nine weeks’ grade (40%), and the semester final exam (20%).  Level 1 classes will not take final exams, but will rather participate in other classroom activities during final exam days.  Final grades in Level 1 classes will be determined by 50% from each grading period. There is a lot of time left to influence a final grade.  The grading policy is explained on page 26-27 of the student handbook.   

    Counselors will soon be meeting with freshmen to discuss their four year plans.  Freshman parents, if you haven’t done so already, please contact your student’s counselor as soon as possible if you have any questions or would like to discuss four year and graduation plans. 

    Our winter athletic teams have been working hard and preparing for the 2018-2019 season.  Please check the web site, daily announcements, and the student handbook for the basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, and swimming schedules.  We appreciate your support and attendance at SHS athletic events.
     

    Some important dates in November: 

    November 3                            SAT

    November 4                            Daylight Savings Time Ends

    November 7                            FAFSA Completion Night

    November 12                         Veterans’ Day Remembrance

    November 17                         Dance Marathon

    November 21-25                 Thanksgiving Vacation

    November 27-30                 ISTEP retests

    As I did last month, I would like to emphasize this point again. Parents, please use Entrance/Exit 3 and Exit 1 only.  Entrance/Exit 2 is intended for student use only.  Minimizing the left hand turns into the student parking lot off of northbound Community Drive will help keep traffic moving and the road clear.  Please remember that for safety reasons, Exit 1 is a RIGHT TURN ONLY exit. 

     Also, if your child is going to miss school, please notify us as soon as you know of the absence so that we can excuse the absence.  Call us at 812-522-4384 and choose option 2 or extension 1238.  Having the absence excused in advance will prevent the student from being marked UNEXCUSED because we are unaware of why the student is missing.

    As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call or an email.  We are ready to help.

    Student Drop Off/Pick Up

    Seymour High School

    1.  All students dropped off before school and picked up after school, will take place in the Student Parking Lot.  Community Drive, Second Street, and the Teacher Parking Lot will NOT be used for student drop off or pick up.
    2. Drivers will enter the Student Parking Lot through location 3 off of Stadium Drive for both drop off and pick up.
    NOTE:  The driving lane closest to the Commons and the Pool, adjacent to the side walk, is ONE WAY leading east to Community Drive where it is RIGHT TURN ONLY onto Community Drive.
    1. During STUDENT DROP OFF BEFORE SCHOOL, drivers will proceed to the designated DROP OFF spots located on the sidewalk near the POOL, students get out and walk to school, and the driver exits the parking lot through Exit 1.
    2. During STUDENT PICK UP AFTER SCHOOL, drivers will PARK and WAIT for students on the West End of the parking lot (nearest the tennis courts) in aisles A, B, or C.  Students will walk to and enter the PARKED car.  The driver will exit the parking lot through either Exit 1 or Exit 3.
    Points to remember:
    1. Student safety is not only more important than driver convenience, it is MOST important.
    2. Before school, parent drivers must exit via Exit 1 and turn south onto Community Drive.  This is the safest and quickest exit from the parking lot before school.
    3. Drivers will NOT line up along the sidewalk for PICK UP, but will remain in the assigned parking area and wait for their rider to enter the vehicle.
    4. Student drivers will enter the parking lot from Entrances/Exits 2 or 3.
    5. Student drivers will park in aisles E, F, G, H, I, J, K, and L.
    6. Student drivers will exit the parking lot from Entrances/Exits 2 or 3.
