Principal Update - October 1, 2020

October 2020

The leaves are starting to change, the nights are getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing, and capacity requirements, this year we will NOT be holding Parent/teacher conferences as we have in prior years. But Parent/teacher conferences are not the only way to contact your students’ teachers. Please use email, telephone, or Harmony Home Portal to stay in touch with your students’ grades. If you would like to meet with a teacher, please contact student services at 522-4384.
It’s hard to believe that we are talking about graduation already, but seniors will soon meet with representatives from Herff-Jones to order graduation announcements and caps and gowns. Seniors typically participate in mock interviews in the fall. This year, we are moving our senior interviews to April 6-9. This will be an excellent opportunity for our students to gain experience by talking to experts in their chosen field.

Some upcoming events for the month of October and some dates that DIFFER from that previously published in the Student-Parent handbook.

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.
