Spring sports are here and students will enter one of the busiest times of the year. Springs sports usually result in students being absent from part or all of the school day. Parents please check with your child(rn ) and make sure they are staying up to date on their school work. It is not uncommon to see a drop in performance during this time of the year. Make sure to utilize the powerschool app. Parents can set alerts to be notified of missing school work or failing grades.
