Dear South Eugene Students and Families,
During this final week of Trimester 1, students are working hard to complete coursework and finish the term well. It has been a challenging fall as schools across the nation have worked to adjust teaching and learning during the pandemic. Thank you for sharing about experiences and needs that have helped us respond. We will continue to do our best to communicate any updates as promptly as possible in the months ahead.
As you may be aware, we do not have an Advisory Day during this four-day week, and students will not have classes this Friday.
Mon. Dec. 7 (A Day)
Tues., Dec. 8 (B Day)
Wed., Dec. 9 (A Day)
Thurs., Dec. 10 (B Day)
Fri., Dec. 11 (No Classes—Grading Day)
As a reminder, the most updated information on student progress in their courses is available in Canvas and families can view it by becoming Observers in Canvas. Remember that StudentVUE/ParentVUE may show mid-term progress report grades, but the final Trimester 1 grade will only be shown there after teachers report that as the term comes to an end. In preparation for grade reporting, StudentVUE/ParentVUE will be closed starting Thursday and will re-open approximately Tuesday of next week, following Friday’s grading day so that final grades are viewable.
In this final week of the term, teachers’ Office Hours continue largely from 3:00pm-4:00pm. Some teachers may have arranged other times for students to demonstrate skills as they work with students to finish out the term.
In Trimester 2, the weekly and daily schedule will remain the same as before. However, teachers’ Office Hours on A Days and B Days will be shifting at South to 1:30pm-2:30pm in an effort to provide support for students earlier in their day. The schedule on Advisory/Flex Days will continue as before, with Advisory from 10:15am-11:00am and Applied Learning Time the remainder of the day.
For students needing a change of schedule to address progress toward graduation, the Trimester 2 Course Correction Form is available on the our website at sehs.lane.edu by clicking on Scheduling 2020-2021 under the Students tab. Students will need to be on their 4J account to access it.
I’d like to acknowledge the intense work of staff, of students, and of families and the kindness that I have seen daily. There is no question the past months have been the most challenging we have experienced in recent history in education and in the nation. We remain committed to doing all we can to help students receive support, make connections, and make progress toward their goals during this time, and we value the support and partnership of our South families.
