  • 4/11 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning,

    I hope you all had a good weekend.

    Here we are at the end of marking period 3, time is flying. All work needs to be submitted by Thursday 12:30 pm so that grades can be entered. If you are missing assignments, you can e-mail your teachers to get, you have a few days left and can still get this done!

    As of today, the June Regents are scheduled to be given with no waivers given. If you are enrolled in a Regents class, you are expected to take them. If this information changes, I will let you know.
    As a reminder that all students will be dismissed every Wednesday after 6th period. This is big change in our daily schedule but an important one. This will begin on Beginning on Wednesday April 13th, all students will be dismissed at the close of 6th period at 2:12pm and follow the same way each Wednesday going forward. This will happen with A, B and C week students regardless of if it is their academic or internship week. 6th period classes on Wednesdays will rotate on a weekly basis so that students continue to see their afternoon teachers on a regular basis on these days. This change will allow us vital time for professional development, administrative duties and curriculum/lesson planning which we are hoping will allow us to elevate instruction in every class throughout the week. We hope that this will also allow additional time for our students to complete classwork and internship research papers at home on their own time. We are excited for this change and believe it will be a positive change for both our students and staff going forward.

    Thank you to all of you that have been calling the school ahead of time to let us know of students needing to leave early for appointments, this really does help us.

    Congratulations to our students that have continued to complete their internship papers, we know this is a great deal of work and effort and it is paying off. Well done!

    Dates to be mindful of:

    4/14- End of marking period 3
    4/15-4/22-Spring Break- School is closed
    4/25-School back in session

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out- Have a GREAT week.
