Tdap immunization is required for all 7th graders

Proof of this immunization on the DH 680 form can be brought to the front office, faxed (904-547-8715), or emailed to Ms. Greve even if your student is still in 6th grade. Per district policy, all 7th grade students are required to submit an updated DH 680 form to include Tdap prior to the start of 7th grade. Failure to provide updated immunization records will delay your child’s start date.

Final Grades

End-of-course assessments have not yet been included in their related class and other items are needed to be completed prior to final grades becoming available. For classes without an EOC, the student’s classwork generally reflects what you would expect for the course grade. Last year, it was the first week of July before the district made final grades available. It may be sooner this year, but we are not able to make any promises. As always, if you are unable to access HAC, it may be an issue of student residency verification. You may get support by contacting our Computer Operator, Ms. Greve, at [email protected]

Course Review Process:

  • Students and parents can request a schedule review for a CORE course placement using the form at the link below.
  • Course reviews will take place after final grades and state testing scores are released in June.  Decisions to change placement will follow the course progressions and will be communicated over the summer.
  • Students and parents will be notified by July 1st if the course review was approved or denied. 

Rising 7th and 8th Grade Parents:

Elective selection is live and will close February 27th. Students will choose their electives for the 24-25 school year in PE the week of February 20th. There is a short elective video posted below that highlights our elective selections and there are handouts posted below with elective selections and explanations listed. Students will use the link on the handout to select and rank their preferred elective choices.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Every student will have P.E. in his or her schedule unless a parent signs a waiver for the student to be excluded from P.E.
  • You can select a semester of PE if you do not want a full year.
  • Semester electives get placed if you do not select a yearlong elective.
  • Applying for these courses does NOT guarantee placement. Core classes scheduling and elective teacher recommendation are considered.
