7-11 January - Back for Second Semester

posted Jan 4, 2019, 9:20 PM by HSD Principal
I hope you all had a restful and energizing break and that you got to do some things that you love with people that you love. My in-laws and nephew were here for three weeks and it was good to spend quality time with them over Christmas.

I will see you all on Monday for our inservice. Marla sent out the schedule a few days ago so you can plan ahead and decide which UnConference sessions you would like to attend.

We will jump right into a block schedule on Tuesday for the first day of classes, so there will not be short periods this first week back. 

Tuesday after school there will be an HSD meeting in the staff lounge beginning at 1:40. Following that at 3:00 will be a memorial service for Jan Hardeman. Specific information about that will be coming from Tom soon.

Your second semester classes should all be set up and ready to go in Sycamore, but let me know if you notice any problems. Students have this week to make schedule changes for the semester. So you may see some students moving in or out of your classes until Friday - especially if you teach semester-long courses.

We will not run eligibility checks for the first two weeks of class since the semester is just getting started. Eligibility checks will begin again the week of 21 January.

Student discipline, eligibility, and merits reset at semester. That means that students will begin the semester with a clean slate for everything except academic integrity issues.

We will talk about it at the HSD meeting, but you should be reviewing and commenting on your annual goals after first semester. Your goals sheet is in a Google folder titled Lastname, Firstname - 2018 PD in case you need to find it again.

Sleep in one last time before students return to campus and we hit the ground running.
