Hope you all had an enjoyable and restful holiday season! It has been wonderful to welcome the students back to school today!
We wanted to provide a reminder about the Monday grade checks. A student who is receiving an F in the “daily accountability” category of any class, or an F in any class without categories (such as electives and religion), is considered ineligible. Accountability measures a student’s ability to follow directions, turn assignments in on time, and ask for help when needed. Students must have missing work for the week turned in by Friday in order for those assignments to be graded and entered on TeacherEase before grade checks are conducted on Monday mornings. When a student is ineligible, he or she may not participate in school-sponsored activities such as athletic games, some performing arts events, and school/diocesan dances for the week. Students should still attend practices or rehearsals. For more information on eligibility, see our student handbook on the website under “About St. Al’s” and then “Handbook & Documents”.
Next week, on Monday Jan. 7, a “practice” grade check will take place. If a student is ineligible, then an email will be sent but students will still be able to participate in athletic events and other extra-curriculars. Beginning with the Monday Jan. 14 grade check, ineligible students will not be able to participate in athletic games but should still attend practices.
Please let Mrs. Holland know if you have any questions!
