GRADE REPORTS TO PARENTS

All parents are required to attend the first 2 report card nights (1st and 2nd marking periods) of the year to meet with their son/daughter’s teachers.  Further, parents must attend 5 out of the 10 home school council meetings for the year.  Failure to comply with this policy will result your son or daughter not being eligible to return to their sending school.  Parents are free to send a representative in their place for any of the aforementioned meeting dates.
