Welcome to OC! We are so excited to begin a new school year with you and our students. There are a few things to call your attention to as we embark on this nine month adventure together:
1. 504 Plans / IEP's
These plans are being uploaded into our curriculum system throughout this week. I am currently reading and reviewing plans for accommodations within the classroom. If I miss something for your student, please have the student remind me of their accommodation so that I can best serve their needs. During this busy time of year there is bound to be a mistake somewhere in there, and my goal is that we work together.
2. Late Start Wednesdays
About 1 - 2 Wednesdays per month are designated "Late Start." That means our tardy bell for first period will not ring until 9:05am because teachers are meeting departmentally those mornings. Students must stay on campus once they are dropped off here, and they must be in their 1st period seat by 9:05. If your student wants to go to Bill Millers or any other venue for food, please get that on the way to school or drop them off to walk from the restaurant to school. If students are found leaving campus, the assistant principals will follow their disciplinary policies.
3. Tutoring Times
I am available for tutoring Monday - Thursday mornings at 8:00am and on Wednesday afternoons 4:10 - 4:45pm.
If students are unable to come during those times, we have a Lunch Tutoring Center that does operate before and after school as well in B102 (Library classroom). It has college students from all subject areas available to students for tutoring in Math, Science, Social Studies, and English throughout the day.
The World at Your Fingertips
This newsletter will be updated monthly on or around the 1st of each month. It should give you a small insight into our studies, goals, and achievements inside the classroom.
