Nurse Notes

·         If your student has turned 16, a second meningococcal vaccine is required. Juniors: If you received a letter in the mail stating you were missing a vaccine, please take care of that as soon as possible.

 

·         Parents: Per state law, if your student tests positive for COVID, you will need to let the school nurse know within 24 hours. Also, if your student is a known close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID, please let the school know so your child will not be marked absent and quarantine dates can be arranged. The nurse may be contacted via the school number during office hours or by email Jessica.Sullivan@spencer.kyschools.us

As we start to work with snow days and other calendar adjustments, please be aware that these will create small changes in the Edgenuity assignment calendars for each course.   If there is a huge change, please email Mr. Bruce at philip.bruce@spencer.kyschools.us to address it.  Thank you.

As Always - the best practice is to treat assignment calendars and progress trackers in Edgenuity as general guides.   Getting ahead and staying ahead is the best way to do Edgenuity courses.



Student videos that every student should have seen, but may have forgotten about - lots of helpful explanations:

 

Student Orientation Video - Actual Grade

 

Explanation of the Course Map

 

A note - just use the due dates and progress tracker in Edgenuity is a general guide.  As long your student is staying ahead of the progress tracker in each course, they should be on track to finish by the end of the year or semester (based on the course).   They do not have to follow the calendar exactly.

Have a Great Weekend!
