A Message from the Principal

Greetings!

 

I hope all is well with you, your family and friends.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, the Governor announced yesterday that schools in our state will not re-open this school year, but rather at-home learning will replace in-person school experiences.  I am so sad that students will be missing out on the great things we provide in-person at Two Rivers, and I am especially sad that our seniors will be missing milestone events.  However, I know that I speak for our entire staff, when I say we are committed to continuing to support your student however we can, and helping your families during these extraordinary circumstances.  We will get through this together!

 

Students should have gotten their weekly assignments yesterday via Schoology.  Please remember that these assignments are required.  Please contact me, and your student’s teachers, if there is an issue causing your student to not be able to complete assignments.  Here are some important updates:

  • For juniors and seniors, third quarter ends on Friday, 4/10.  Grades will be posted.  If your student has missing work, please have them contact their teachers this week to make a plan to get caught up over Spring Break.
  • Freshmen and sophomores should be working with their advisors and their math teacher on ongoing assignments and projects. 
  • All students should be in frequent contact with their teachers and/or advisors.  Freshmen and sophomores should be in near daily contact with their advisors.  Juniors and seniors should be contacting teachers at least twice per week.
  • There will be a slight glitch with Schoology this week.  Our quarter ends on Friday, however our Schoology was set up for the quarter to end last week.  There is no special action you need to take regarding this; we will work to align the dates later.
  • Spring break is still happening next week – starting on Monday, 4/13.  No new assignments will be posted, and school personnel will not be in contact.
  • I have been working closely with the District and other principals around the state to determine potentially modified graduation requirements for seniors.  If students are in contact with their teachers and advisors and following their weekly learning plans, they will be fine in general.  If your student has an issue around state testing, you have already been contacted by our staff. Seniors, since we just learned of this change to the rest of the school year, we will need some time to consider options for how to modify our graduation ceremony.  I’m assuming that we will need to do this via an online tool.  We will start planning for this after Spring Break.
  • Freshmen, sophomore and junior students should work with their advisors and our counselor, Elaine, to choose potential electives from Mount Si for next year.  I am trying to determine the level of interest in their courses for next year, so that we can reserve spots if needed. 
  • If your student needs to pick up a computer or other school materials, please email me at schmidtr@svsd410.org to arrange a pick up time.  I am in the building most days from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. (except for Spring Break).

 

Take care,

Rhonda
