Q2: Reminders
Attendance is mandatory for all students. The day starts at 8:30 and everyone must be in class, either in person, or remotely through an attendance survey. If you are not in class (virtual or remote) or do not complete the 8:30 survey, you will be counted as absent. For whatever reason, if you miss your 8:30 class/ survey and go to all the rest of your classes, YOU MUST COMMUNICATE THIS TO KRISTY IN THE OFFICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
AP Exam entries - These were due by Thursday (12th) Emails have been sent on several occasions. If you have not yet registered and paid, you have missed the deadline. Please contact dsacks@hatfieldps.net for more information and the additional cost of registering late.
