Dear Students, Parents, and Concerned Community Members
Well, to say the least, this has been a different start to our year. Currently we have about 70 percent of our students taking advantage of distance learning with our staff from home and about 30 percent attending classes here on campus each day. Either way, our teachers are committed to providing quality education to help students achieve their goals and graduate from High School, on time.
It is important for the success of our program that students who have chosen distance learning, attend each day. That means students must sign into their assigned classes during the regular scheduled class time and participate with the class during that block of time. Our start time is 7:20 AM and our school schedule is posted on this website. It is particularly important for our IMPACT students that students enter TEAMS to be counted for attendance and then work on their courses in Edgenuity. Students who do not sign in through TEAMS and participate in IMPACT during the regular class time, WILL NOT have access to the coursework until the next school day. This is very different than how school finished the 2019-20 school year; however, students need to be working closely with their assigned teachers to get the greatest benefit from the courses they are assigned.
Things could not be better here on campus, we have a very, very small population so teachers are able to spend more individual time with students; getting to know their individual needs better and working with them. Lunches are running smoothly, and bus transportation has been seamless. Class sizes here on campus are ranging from 8 students to 15 to maintain social distancing and our Counselors are doing an excellent job of meeting with students to ensure their schedules are perfect.
In the next couple of weeks, we will enter TESTING SEASON. Those students who have chosen distance learning from home will need to come to campus to take these very important exams. Starting September 14th with Algebra One Retakes and then English/Language Arts Retakes beginning September 22nd. These two tests are a requirement for graduation and are only offered twice a year. It is important that students who have not yet passed either or both exams arrange to come to campus during testing time to complete them. Please check our web site regularly for updates and times for students to test. Students will also be getting messages from their classroom teachers and through REMIND regarding upcoming testing.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call the school at 407-846-3976. I sincerely hope that everyone enjoys their Labor Day weekend and stays safe.
Mr. Robert Studly, Principal
