September 18, 2020
The weather is changing and fall is here. Progress reports will be available October 9th. Please contact your child’s teachers with any questions. Staff contact information is available on our website under the “Faculty and Staff” tab. Here are this week’s announcements!
Attention Senior Families!!!! Senior portraits and baby pictures need to be submitted to Yearbook Staff by December 1st. Please email them, and any Yearbook questions, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Yearbook Flyer.
FAMILY VACATION FORMS
During the school year some families take vacations and ask that we excuse their children from school days. This is not a problem, however, we do have forms for the student, parents, teachers and administration to sign off on in order to help students understand the expectations of making up missed work. The forms can be found in the main office. Thanks for your help!
FROM THE GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT
We are working hard to make sure everyone’s schedules and academic plans are ready for the 2020-2021 school year. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Once school begins we will not be making changes to schedules until the week of September 21st.
You may reach Mrs. Hayes at email@example.com and Mrs. Nason at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PSATs AND SATS
To our 10th and 11th Grade Parents and Students: Typically in October our sophomores and juniors take the PSATs. The College Board has offered the opportunity to take these tests in January this year. In order to allow for students and faculty to adjust to our new school routine we are going to hold off and provide this testing opportunity to students in January.
To our Seniors: We do not offer a school based SAT opportunity this fall. You can register to take the SATs at other high schools in the area. Seniors should connect with colleges and universities they are considering applying to and confirm if SATs are required for admissions this year. Many institutions are waiving this requirement in light of the pandemic. Please see Mrs. Hayes or myself if you have questions or concerns about this.
RETURNING STUDENT ONLINE REGISTRATION
This process replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year. You should have received an email from “rsu23enrollment” with instructions. If you have not received an email, please contact Karen Murphy @ email@example.com.
Picture day is scheduled for Tuesday, September 22nd. Picture forms will be distributed to students during the first week of school.
SCHOOL NUTRITION PROGRAM
As a reminder, breakfast and lunch are available daily at school. Until December 31st breakfast and lunch will be FREE TO ALL STUDENTS. Please still fill out a Free and Reduced Lunch application to determine if your child qualifies for free or reduced price meals. Applications are available at the high school and on our website at: https://rsu23.org on the Food & Nutrition Services page. Menus are also posted to the website. Please feel free to contact Caroline Trinder, Food & Nutrition Services Director with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 934-4461 ext. 1239. We are looking forward to serving healthy and tasty meals all year!
