Overall Guidelines

  • Learners are required to schedule their tutoring sessions via Sign-up Genius each week.
    • It is recommended that learners use Study Hall to schedule their 3 tutoring sessions each week. 
    • All learners must be in a tutoring session each day following the bell
  • Personal Electronics policy applies at all times, as this is academic time. 
    • Learners will have access to Chromebook devices during Focus 45 to ensure they have access to resources and materials needed for course work. 
  • Hallways are for transitioning; learners should not be seated in hallway coves.
  • Parent/Guardian early dismissal/pick-ups are strongly discouraged during Focus 45 as making school-wide announcements can be distracting. Early dismissals should be given before or after Focus 45.
