4/24 Message to Class of 2016 Parents/Guardians

posted Apr 25, 2016, 4:53 AM by Massabesic highschool
Hi All! We continue to try and make sure that every one of our seniors in academic difficulty has the best chance possible to graduate with their class in June. We have again set up some times for seniors to finish missing and/or poor quality work not yet at proficiency.

I am sending out this email to reinforce what was shared with you by our guidance counselors right before the break. Our records indicate that your son or daughter needs to be here after school on Tuesday and Thursday and to stay here from 11:15-2:00 for this week's Early Release Wednesday to complete make-up work. At least one of your son/daughter’s teachers has shared that they have overdue work, which needs to be completed. If your son or daughter feels this is an error they need to check with all of their teachers and/or to meet with Mr. Morin tomorrow so we can see if they are correct or if they are dreaming.

Your son/daughter MUST be here to make up overdue work from the beginning of the 2nd semester until April 14th. This week if they are not here Tuesday and Thursday (2:00 - 3:00 PM), and do not stay from 11:15-2:00 during this Wednesday they will not be allowed to make up this work until Credit Recovery Summer School, which takes place at the end of June. For those that make this poor choice it will mean they will NOT be receiving their diploma or participating in graduation, on June 9th.

As I shared previously, students in this boat have been given opportunities by their teachers to complete work and have not taken advantage of them. If your son or daughter is in this boat they have this chance to make a good faith effort by both being here and working on what they owe. If they don’t take advantage and they need this work to earn credit for graduation then they won’t be graduating on June 9th with their class! 

When your son or daughter complete's work Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and they think they are all set they are not to leave or stop coming until an MHS Administrator checks with the teacher who assigned the work to see if they have now met minimum proficiency. This means that some students will wait and continue to return each day until the work is corrected.

Thanks in advance for your help in supporting your son or daughter to make the right choice by being at MHS this!

My best,

Christian M. Elkington
