When a student enters the junior high building (any time between 7:30-7:55) wearing a mask, he/she needs to report to their homeroom and wait for the teacher's instruction on getting prepared for the day. They may visit with their classmates, as long as they leave their masks on, while they wait for instructions. Students will be marked tardy if not in the building by 7:55.
On Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, students begin the day with electives. Thursday is mass day for the junior high. We will leave for church at 7:55. If your child is late on any morning, they must check in at the office before coming to class our church.
P.E./Health classes are Mondays through Fridays. Until further notice the students will not change for PE. When we get back to normal, the student must bring his/her P.E. uniform EVERYDAY in a gym bag. PE grades are based on wearing proper PE uniforms. Please make sure everything is marked with his/her name.
Lunch will be in our classroom where the students will sit in thei assigned seats. Birthdays will be celebrated during lunch. Treats must be store bought.
Another reminder is about the school’s textbooks. The books are the property of the school and are not to be written in or destroyed in any way by the student. Failure to keep books in good condition could lead to the student having to purchase the book(s). Also, Chomebooks also need to be charged when students come to class.
