Parent message 12-13
Good evening, Clipper families. This is Principal Savage with your weekly message.
As we enter this week it will be the last week before winter break. To help students and staff enjoy this week there will be a school spirit week sponsored by the SGA. We will start Monday with pajama day. Check out the flyer for more information. Holiday Spirit Week JMB.png
Progress reports will be available this week on the 15th at 3. For more information about how to review the progress report see the attached directions. Viewing Student and Parent Published Reports.pdf
Over the last month our teachers have been nominating students for special Clipper awards. Teachers nominated over 200 students. If your child was nominated, you should have received an email on Friday.
Seniors I know that this year is not what you had dreamed of but despite the circumstance you are still in your senior year and you are to be celebrated. On Friday seniors received a special email so be sure to check your email to make sure you are up to date and in the know.
The bulk of this message really must focus on the fact that when we return from break on January 4th, we will be conducting a full school day schedule virtually. That means on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday your first class will start at 7:45 and your last class will end a 2:45. For the month of January only, our lunch will be from 11:25 – 11:50. When some students start returning in person on February 2nd we will have four lunch shift that will take please during 3rd period. Remember that Wednesday will remain asynchronous.

Please continue to be safe and vigilant over the holidays. I know that as we approach the holidays family visits are a key component of that time. My family is currently in part of Maryland with a high number of cases. Just as many of you are facing the same question, I find myself wondering if I should visit or not or how I can visit safely. Whatever you do this holiday season, I hope you enjoy yourself and stay health.
Thank you and have a wonderful break.
