Here is the much anticipated school status update for Wednesday, December 12, 2018! There will once again be no school for students tomorrow, December 12. While the snow has melted A LOT today (YAY!) and our maintenance crews have been hard at work trying to ready our schools (THANK YOU!), we are very concerned that with the temperatures dropping to 25 degrees overnight, there will be parking lots, neighborhood sidewalks, and side streets covered with ice come morning. Therefore, for the safety of our students, we have made the decision to not hold school for students tomorrow. Staff, we ask that you report when safely possible but not before 10:30am to give our maintenance department time to clear the parking lots and sidewalks throughout the district of ice.
For our MHS Seniors that are scheduled to present their Capstone projects tomorrow, the Mooresville High School Blue Devils administration will let you know when the make-up date will be to present.
Finally, and we are asking for your understanding as we think about our students, we have made the decision to make up one of the missed days on January 2, 2019. With the hurricane and this snow storm, we have missed five days and had one delayed start. While our calendar committee does a great job of building in extra hours each year to help alleviate the ramifications of inclement weather days, we have been hit hard with weather this first semester and feel our high school students especially need this makeup day due to End-of-Course and final exams that occur mid-January. We know some of our families may still be traveling on January 2 and the principals will work with you if that is the case.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly via Facebook Messenger, email (email@example.com), or by phone. We can't thank all of you enough for your patience and support and we will hope that our winter weather will be kept to a minimum for the remainder of the school year!
If you have more than 6 absences in a class, you are at risk of failing that class, even with a passing grade. All students with more than 6 absences in a class are expected to complete and submit an Attendance Appeal packet by Wednesday, January 9, 2019. A significant determining factor in granting the appeal is that the absences are recovered or made-up. It is the student's responsibility to work with his or her teacher to recover the absences before or after school. However, students may also recover their attendance by attending Attendance Recovery sessions.
