Nontraditional Instruction Days begin March 30, 2020
Beginning on March 30, 2020, students will be receiving assignments from teachers electronically. Students will need to complete and return assignments to teachers according to the instructions given by the individual teachers. Grades will be updated weekly and parents can access them through ParentVue App. If you do not have access, please contact our counselor - Whitney Pope at email@example.com.
We can't wait to see our students in person, but until then we hope they will work on continuing their education through the electronic means available to them.
We have received guidance on how schools need to respond to coronavirus. The link for information is below:

Frequently Asked Questions about the coronavirus for Parents:
Parents of Seniors - please make sure your student is on track for completion of the SAILS Math course for this school year. Students, who have not finished Module 4, will be placed on a probation list for graduation. We would like for all seniors to stay on the schedule to complete the class in time to earn their final math credit for graduation. If you have a question about whether or not your child is on track, please contact Mrs. Curlin, SAILS Math instructor and/or Mrs. Jackson, Principal. We receive a report from SAILS Math regarding student status each week.
Targeted Tutoring at ESP
Our After School Program called ESP is providing Targeted Tutorin. Students, who have refused to do homework, failed to turn in assignments or refused to do work in classroom as requested by a teacher, will have mandatory targeted tutoring assigned for them to complete work. This tutoring time will be Monday through Friday from 3:15 - 4:15 p.m. Students failing to attend their required tutoring will have mandatory time doubled. It is important for students to complete work so we can check mastery of objectives for the class. We want all students on track for graduation!
REPORT CARDS FOR FIFTH SIX WEEKS -
On April 8, 2020, our fifth six weeks grading period is ending. Report Cards will be sent home on April 14, 2020. Students failing two or more courses will be placed on the school's NO PASS LIST which restricts students from attending any extra-curricular event at the school for the next six weeks so they can concentrate on learning the instruction that takes place at school. Extra-curricular activities are just that - Extra - and are a privilege for students to attend. Please make sure your child is turning in all assignments so their grades will be as high as possible when report cards are sent home.
TN READY GRADUATE
The Ready Graduate criteria includes the following four measures for graduates. To be considered a ready graduate, students must meet at least one of the following:
● Score of 21 or higher on ACT (or 1060 or higher on the SAT); or
● Complete 4 early postsecondary opportunities (EPSOs); or
● Complete 2 EPSOs and earn an industry certification; or
● Complete 2 EPSOs and earn a score of military readiness of a 31 on ASVAB AFQT.
There is still time for students to be able to qualify as a Ready Graduate. Talk to your school counselor about how to help your child become a Ready Graduate.
Attendance and Passing Grades are important. TN TEEN DRIVERS - must show proof of school attendance/progress from a current Tennessee school or a letter from the school in your previous state that confirms your attendance (no more than 15 days missed) and satisfactory progress during enrollment in that school. This letter must be signed and dated by the principal. Schools report to the State students who are not making satisfactory progress (failing 2 or more classes) and the State pulls that teen's license until they can show satisfactory progress.

Spring Break for students will begin Monday, March 23, 2020. We will all be out of school Monday through Friday, March 23-27, 2020. Enjoy your Spring Break! We will resume classes on Monday, March 20, 2020.
