Hello Senior Parents/Guardians,
Please find the email sent from Interim Vice Principal Chris Hardiman on Friday, Nov 6, 2020. Thank you.
Dear Seniors and Families,
I wanted to clarify something that I know has been causing some confusion as it is a new procedure for this year to have senior grades close earlier than the rest of the school due to the late start to the school year and college deadlines for grades:
1. If you are in a class that is ending at the end of term 1, you should remain in that class until the official end of Term 1 for the rest of the school which is through 11/13. Your teachers are closing your grades today but term 2 does NOT begin for you on Monday, 11/9 in term-long classes so you should continue attending classes next week. Please check in with individual teachers about any other specific questions about this and they can clarify for you.
2. If you are in a semester long or year long class AND you ONLY have seniors in your class, your teacher will most likely be starting term 2 for everyone in your class as of Monday, 11/9.
If you are in a semester long or year long class AND you have UNDERCLASSMEN in the class, confirm with your teacher what the grading term timeline will be for term 2–i.e. different start timeline for seniors and underclassmen or the same timeline?
Also, to meet college deadlines for second term, we will be closing senior grades a week earlier than the rest of the school as well. Second term grades will be closing for seniors on Friday, January 22nd.
Finally, first term grades for seniors will be posted on Aspen NEXT Friday, 11/13 at 5:00pm.
Have a great weekend!
~ Mr. Hardiman, NSHS Interim Vice Principal
