From Mrs. Kunze
Happy Friday!

It is hard to believe that we finished week 5. We strongly encourage all parents to check your child's grades in HAC. If your child is struggling in a class, please reach out to the teacher. Also, talk to your child about using EXCEL time to seek help from a teacher and/or re-take a summative.

ATER SCHOOL TUTORING! 
National Honor Society after school tutoring takes place next week every Tuesday and Thursday after school in the media center from 4-5 p.m. This is a FREE service for all our students. They do not need to make an appointment or reservation. Students just need to come straight to the media center after school, sign in, and our NHS Officers will match them up with a tutor. This is available to ALL our students – distance learners included! Our tutors can work with them virtually if they need help, however, they will need to contact Mrs. Milian directly to try to schedule a virtual tutor. If a student needs other times (ie: mornings, lunch, excel, other days, etc) students need to contact me directly so that I can schedule a tutor to meet with him/her. For situations like this, a few days notice is needed. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at carolyn.milian@stjohns.k12.fl.us 

Policy Reminder
If your child does not feel well and needs to check out from school, please tell them to ask the teacher for a pass to the clinic. The clinic will contact the parent to make arrangements for dismissal. Students should not use their cell phone when in class to contact their parent to check out of school.

SCHOOL PICTURE DAYS COMING SOON! Underclass school pictures will be taken Thursday and Friday, October 8-9 during English classes. Students will receive order forms, or you can order online at Leonards.com. If you did not receive a photo order form and would like to prepay, go to leonards.com/photoprepay . You can register for an account and order your preferred package. The Nease account code is C525357.

***************************VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!**************************************************

The PSAT exam is an important upcoming assessment for high school students on Wednesday, October 14th. As a reminder, the PSAT is for ALL 10th grade students as well as 9th or 11th grade students who have registered and paid to take the exam.

Due to COVID-19, the number of students we can place in our large group spaces is significantly reduced. This makes it difficult to provide a learning space for students who are not participating in the PSAT. To ensure both student safety and the optimal testing environment, we will allow flexibility to students on this day. High school students who are not participating in the PSAT may complete assigned work from home or at school on this day.  Assigned work will be due on Thursday, October 15th. 

Please also note that October 14 is our first day of the revised time for Wednesday dismissal. Students will be dismissed at 2:00 pm on Wednesdays from October 14 – December 18, 2020.

  • Has your child had close contact with someone who in the past 14 days who tested positive for COVID-19? If yes, your child must quarantine for 14 days from the last date of contact with the positive individual. A negative test result does not reduce the quarantine requirement for the full 14 day incubation period.

Distance Learners
CHANGE TO AFTER SCHOOL TESTING FOR AP & IB COURSES
Week of October 5th - We will continue to test on Thu & Fri from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the cafeteria both days.
Week of October 12th - We will move testing to Wed (2:30pm to 4pm) & Thu from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the cafeteria both days.
We are having too many conflicts with finding a space to test on Fridays.

The district has created a technology issue webpage to check for technology issues.

Students who are participating in the distrance learning option must...
  • Check Schoology updates for each course daily.
  • Participate in live conferences each period.
  • Have access to a computer with a working camera and microphone.
  • Have access to a printer.

Students: Download the weekly agenda, so if Schoology goes down you have the agenda for that period on your computer already.

Cameras need to be turned on when directed by the teacher to do so. Some students are logging in and since their camera is off are walking away from their computer. The teacher knows this when they ask the distance learner a question and there is no response. Students must participate in whatever is planned by the teacher that day. Teachers have been asked to email home for parent support and if the issue continues, the student will be referred to a dean.
