a message from ms. cope

Hello Seniors and Parents,

Now that the 1st semester grades have gone out, I will be sending an email to all students with their graduation requirements that they have left to satisfy for a standard diploma.  The email will go to students’ school email.  Please be patient as there are over 400 seniors. 

If a student has failed a course or courses, it is the student’s responsibility to contact me  for credit recovery.  Please monitor all grades for this 2nd semester and do your best to pass every class.  If you fail a course the 2nd semester, there is no credit recovery until this summer. 

If a parent teacher conference is needed, you can contact the guidance secretary Ms. Gregory at 475-5257 extension 224 to set up a meeting.

Thanks, and have a great day!

Ms. Cope
