End of Year Letter

Hello Independent Studies Families,


What an amazing year!  It is hard to believe that this year has ended and we are already getting for the 2018-2019  school year. This end of year letter will provide important details about grades, Fall 2018-209 Registration, and book return.


Final Grades:

In the mail, you will find your child’s Spring Final Grades.  Please review the grades and credits. For students to be on track, they should of completed 5 credits per class and receive a passing grade.


For students that are in need of additional support due to low credits, grades, and attendance, they will be assigned to attend a directed studies class weekly.  They may also be required to check in with the counselor weekly.


Fall Registration Day

All returning students will need to come on August 16th (Wednesday).  During the Fall registration day, your child will get the following:

~ Class schedule

~ Schedule their appointment times


Times:  9:00 am All new enrolled students for Fall 2016-2017 (ones that attended orientation)

Please have a safe and enjoyable summer break.  We look forward to seeing you in the Fall.
