Dear Parents/Guardians and 7th/8th grade students,
Starting with second quarter, the middle school team will be strictly adhering to the Ray Parent and Student Handbook policy (see below) for late and make-up work. We feel that the students have had the first quarter to learn the routines of 7th and 8th grade and are able to turn work in on-time going forward. Furthermore, each student has access to their grades through Student Portal and should be regularly checking his/her progress. Parents can also check student progress through Parent Portal and set up text and email alerts when their child’s grade drops below a set standard.

Starting Thursday, hoodies are not to be worn in class per the school rules. We attempted to allow students to tuck them in, due to daily defiance we have decided that no clothing with hoods may be worn. Additionally, backpacks in the classroom have become a safety issue. Backpacks will no longer be allowed in the classroom. Students will be given times to go to their lockers during intervention block to get backpacks for dismissal.
Also, several teachers have blogs where they post up-to-date information and homework assignments.

Late & Make-Up Work
Late work will be accepted in every grade level and every content area. An unexcused late assignment should be reduced one letter grade from the graded value per day for each day the assignment is late.
EX: One day late – highest grade possible for “A” level work: B.
Make-up work should be allowed one day for every day of absence.
EX: For three days of absence, a student shall receive three days to make up work.
