Davis Parents and Students,

Please note the updated class/day schedules in the newsletter and in the Calendar tab. 
8th grade students are to attend the PSAT testing on Tuesday, April 13th from 8:20 am to Noon and will take a Grab and Go lunch with them on their way out. 
On Wednesday, all 9th grade students are to attend the PSAT testing- same times. 
The COVID-19 Screening policy does apply to students coming in for testing.  Please refer to that document in the newsletter and do not send students who are ill or who have been exposed to or have tested positive for COVID-19.

The scheduling process for the 2021/2022 school year is moving along.   Schedules were due by April 1st.  Students were to schedule using the app found in Classlink and by using their powerschool account.  Completing an online schedule will serve as a placeholder into a class for these students.  Students in 6th grade will use the SWAY app to choose classes for the 2021-22 school year.

 As a reminder... 

Students should NOT be using their school issued laptop for personal use.  The TEAMS chat and calls features are to reach out to teachers and staff and to be only utilized during class meetings as well as any platform that acts as a communication tool.  Student can set up homework groups but it must be school related.

Students must have their ID card on them at all times during the school day.   All students will receive an ID at the beginning of each school year.
