 Grades will be checked at the mid-term of the 1st quarter, the end of 1st quarter, mid-term of the 2nd quarter, the end of the 1st semester. Students may be added on a weekly basis, if needed. If a student is notified that he/she must attend the Extended School Day Program they will be required to attend until the next grade check. Students will be notified in their Advisory Class and a letter will be sent to parent/guardians as well.
