Student Transportation UPDATE
Town of Torbay/Flatrock - Chief McGrath Award
Congratulations to Charla Woodford, one of our Grade 8 students, on receiving the Grade 8 Level Chief McGrath award for Youth Community Leadership. This award, given by the Torbay and Flatrock Volunteer Fire Department and the respective towns, is in recognition of student volunteerism and leadership in the local communities and is given to a Grade 4, 8 and 12 student each year. Congratulations Charla!!
Student Attendance Notifications
Effective this week, nightly e-mail notifications for student absences will be emailed to parents/guardians via PowerSchool. Attendance is taken twice daily for Elementary students, at the start of the day in the morning and at the start of classes after lunch. In Junior High attendance is recorded for each class. If your child is absent from class you will receive an e-mail informing you. If you have any concerns regarding the absence please reach out to your child’s teacher.
We are pleased to report that most Junior High students who submitted loan agreements have received their District issued Chromebook, and the most recent shipment is being distributed this week.
If you have not completed the District-issued form for the Chromebooks, you can find one here.
As a result of the demand that these devices have on our Wi-Fi network, Junior High students will no longer be able to connect their personal devices, such as cell phones, to our school's Wi-Fi. This will ensure that all devices required for program delivery, including the new Chromebooks, can connect successfully. We are very excited about this substantial addition of technology!
Curriculum Night Alternate
Given the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we were unable to hold our Annual Curriculum Night. In lieu of our traditional in-person presentation, we are forwarding information about your child’s academic program for the 2020-21 school year that was compiled by your child’s grade level/subject area teachers.
