Dear Upper School Parents,
Happy New Year and welcome to the second semester of the 2019-20 school year! While our freshmen have settled into life as an Upper School student, our seniors are embarking on their last few months on campus. The spring semester creates many opportunities for our community to come together to celebrate our students on the courts and fields, in the theater, and in the classroom. From the Student-Led production to our annual Model UN trip to The Hague, our students work tirelessly with faculty to grow their talents and passions.
Second quarter, exam, and first semester grades were released earlier this month. Please log into Veracross
to access the Grade Report as you did first quarter. Should you need help logging into and/or navigating Canvas or Veracross, please contact Sandi Johnson, our Upper School technology integrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a number of trips coming up which involve students being away from campus for both single days and an extended period of time. The US faculty are prepared to support students during absences. That said, it is the responsibility of the students missing class to speak with their teachers and to check Canvas and email to ensure they are “up-to-date.” We know it can be difficult to balance these commitments and we certainly appreciate how hard our students work to be mindful of all of their responsibilities and deadlines.
