No Printed Progress Reports 

For the Fourth Academic Quarter, we will not be printing and sending home Academic Progress Reports.  Because all of our teachers are required to post their grades and keep them updated (at least weekly) on Grade Connect, both students and parents/guardians have virtually continuous access to current grades in each course.  

We will, however, ask teachers to make sure that they have their grades updated to reflect students’ current standing in their courses by May 9, the official Interim or Mid-Quarter point of the Fourth Academic Quarter.  Teachers will also be encouraged to include comments about students’ progress in their Gradebooks on Grade Connect.  

Should you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress in a given course, please contact the teacher of that course.

All NEW students to Carroll and all Juniors are required to submit a record of immunizations along with a physical by the first day of school. 

Please check with your physician to see if your child is required to get another MCV/Polio Vaccine.
