Academic Warnings

Academic Warnings will be sent out beginning September 23rd. If your child receives a warning, please contact your child’s teacher. The teacher will be able to offer support, insight and next steps in making academic improvements. Please login to Infinite Campus or visit our school website for teacher contact information.

I would also encourage you and/or your student/s to reach out to your teacher regardless. We value our connection with our students and families and are available to support your family through these unprecedented times.

Wednesday – Early dismissal at 1:15pm for teacher meetings



There is a link on the school website where students can log-in from home to check in for attendance. They should do this ONCE per day on days they're learning from HOME. **Students do NOT fill this out when they are in the building.


Team Up

We have an after-school program called Team Up that will start next week. This program provides academic support for students as well as homework help. Students receive dinner after school before they check in with their academic teachers. This will help increase students' confidence in important subjects including math, Language and Literature. Academic support continues until 3:30pm leaving students with plenty of time to pick up younger siblings from elementary schools. Some elementary schools also offer Team UP for their students. Students should pick up a packet from the office tomorrow and turn it in this week because Team Up starts on Monday after school! We will be meeting in the gym.


Picture Day

School pictures will be taken on Thursday, September 24 (B-day) and Friday, September 25 (A-day) during Science classes. Picture information and the payment envelope go home on Tuesday (B)and Wednesday (A).  Distance learners are welcome to take pictures during the scheduled time of their science class or between 8:30am and 9:10am.



There is a link at and on our Facebook page to get information on how students can access classes and assignments in Teams both in English and Spanish.


Open House

COVID will not allow us to host an open house. We are preparing video-introductions by our teachers where they can introduce themselves to parents and share information about their expectations. We will also include a virtual tour of the building so you can experience Vaughn


Thank you and have a great day!
