  • ACT re-take scores have been sent to students.  The score report that is sent to the student, it still says “October 2018/State” for the date of the test although these are the scores for the December re-take.  This is already causing some confusion and generating some phone calls.

  • Reminder:  students have 3 days to turn in an excuse note after missing school.  Parents have 5 notes they can use in a semester for student absences.  Doctor/Dentist notes also need to be turned in within three days.  By county policy if the note (parent or doctor) is not turned in within three days then it is automatically marked as unexcused.  This is important because in order to be exempt from finals students can have no more than 3 excused absences.  Any unexcused absences and they are not eligible for exemptions.
