9/20/2019 Climate Strike

Dear Parents,

            On September 20, 2019, there is a nationwide climate crisis strike at noon.  While we support students participating in civic engagement and exercising their First Amendment rights, we want to remind you that regular classroom schedules will continue as usual. 

Absences to participate in the protest will be excused if a student has parental permission. We thank those of you who have already submitted permission slips to allow your child to participate. In an effort to account for all students who are permitted to leave the building for this event, we ask that all parents provide a written note for your child to bring to school tomorrow. This note should be submitted to your child's Period 5 teacher. If your child has lunch period 5, the note should be submitted to a dean in the student cafeteria. Once period 5 attendance is taken and the teacher has received the permission slip, students participating will be permitted to engage in the event.

Class will continue for all students who are not participating in the event. We thank you in advance for your cooperation regarding this matter.
