Flex Friday: March 8

Our Flex Friday for Quarter 3 is coming up this Friday, March 8th. There will be no regular classes on that day; instead, students are welcome to come to school that day from 8:00am to 12:30pm to get additional help and retake tests/quizzes. This is not designed as a day for students to come and make-up all the work they have missed during the term, but rather to catch up on something they missed while they were sick, away at a sporting event, or something similar. Flex Friday is also the last opportunity to turn in late work — with the prior permission of the teacher — to be assessed before the end of the term.

Students must be in uniform on Flex Friday. Students not in uniform may not be on campus.

If your student will be making up NGs during Flex Friday, be sure they pick up a form from the front office to have their teacher sign during remediation! NG forms must be returned to the front office at the end of Flex Friday.
