ANNOUNCEMENTS

First Quarter Honor Roll Receptions will be held this week.  The 7th Grade breakfast will be held at 9:00a Thursday, October 31st.  The 8th grade breakfast will be held on Friday, November 1st at 8:00a. Students with questions can come to the office during a passing period. 

Honor Roll Correction-When the 8th grade honor roll list was pulled for the first quarter, the original list generated was incorrect and had an error in how the GPAs were calculated.  As a result of this error, 28 students received invitations to the honor roll reception scheduled for this Friday. Unfortunately, students who did not have a GPA of 3.5 or higher will not be recognized at the honor roll reception.   Students have been notified if their GPA did not qualify them for honor roll recognition.  Please accept our apologies for this error.  We sincerely hope each of these students will attain honor roll status for the final three quarters of the year. If you have any questions, please contact me at jhauselman@warsawschools.org

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

ELEARNING: All eLearning days are 7 period day schedules. If we miss a Wednesday - eLearning would be 7 periods and odd block would move to Friday. If we miss a Thursday, elearning would be 7 periods and even block would be Friday.  If we miss both Wednesday Thursday - we will all be rested for Friday and Friday would be 7 periods. 

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

Academic eligibility for athletes:  If your son/daughter is participating in sports, be sure you know the athletic policy (posted on the Edgewood website) regarding eligibility and grades.  We will be checking grades every week and this can impact an athlete's eligibility to participate, practice and play.
