April 24, 2020 update!!

Good Afternoon Bluejay Families, This is a reminder you we have our final homework pickup on April 29th.  For Specific Work Packet information please see below, Facebook, Twitter or Supts Blog.  All homework should be returned by May 15th either at the daily drop-off at Central from 9-11 or on May 15, 2020 at individual buildings.  Principals and Teachers will be sending out more information on final homework drop-off, collection of personal items from the buildings and cap and gown pick-up for our graduating seniors. We are working on plans for Prom, Class night, scholarship interviews and Graduation.  Information in regards to all of these events will be forthcoming so please look to your emails and social media information sites.  Mrs. McMahan will be soliciting information from our seniors about their preferences for options for a graduation ceremony and timing of that Ceremony.


As for that homework, we understand we have students who are concerned about their GPA as a result of our distance learning program.  Please remember that your GPA will not be affected negatively as long as you are making effort to complete assigned work.  In fact, your GPA can be positively affected if you completed work at a high enough level.  Teachers will utilize May 14-20 to evaluate the work handed in and will adjust grades accordingly.  Please note this is an excellent opportunity for students who may have failing or near failing grades to engage in and complete work and increase their standing towards graduation.   Please complete the work, show effort and engagement in all of your courses and all will be well.


In closing, we hope everyone is thinking positive, we are on the home stretch of our school term and as things improve in the State of Illinois we are all hoping and praying that we are able to get out and enjoy our community, family and friends very soon.
