Student Schedules 2018-19

Important Information about Student Schedules for the 2018-19 School Year

 

Student schedules will be available for students and parents to view on Synergy, Wednesday, July 25.  You can request corrections, if there is a problem with your schedule.  Please note that we will ONLY make changes for the following reasons:

  1. You have taken and passed a course that is on your schedule.
  2. You are a senior and are missing a required class for graduation.
  3. You have the same course listed twice on your schedule.
  4. There is a gap in your schedule (missing a period) or you have a CNSL listed for a period.
  5. You have not met the pre-requisite for a class on your schedule. (ie: scheduled for Drawing 2 but have not had Drawing 1).

Schedule changes WILL NOT BE MADE for the following reasons:
1. You want a different teacher.
2. You want to be in a class with a friend.
3. You want a different lunch(we now have 3 lunch cycles).
4. You changed you mind about the classes you registered for in the Spring.
So please do not ask for these changes.

We are limiting our face-to-face meetings with counselors to 15 minutes on the Readiness Days for multiple problems with your schedules as listed above, and will schedule appointments during your grade levels assigned time and day. If you need an appointment, call the Counseling Center at 402-436-1301, ext. 3.  For your convenience using the google form is best and changes will be made as soon as possible.  Check your Synergy for updates.

Summer School Attendance

Absences to Summer School are not listed as excused or unexcused. Due to the very short nature of Summer School, students need to be present every day of instruction for them to be able to have ample opportunity to achieve a semester’s worth of objectives. Once a student has missed five days total or three days in a row, for any reason, they will no longer have the opportunity to earn credit in that class that they have missed. Being late by more than 30 minutes is considered being absent from the class and will be counted as one of the absences. Being repeatedly tardy to class may also result in removal from Summer School, at the discretion of the principal.

Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)

“Last April one of the students who attended Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) at Camp Kitaki stated that being at the camp helped him get to know himself better and understand what it means to be a leader.  Students also report enjoy meeting peers from across the state of Nebraska and Iowa (as well as internationally), and making life-long friendships.”
‘The Deadline for students to apply for this incredible opportunity is quickly approaching (March 1st).  The camp is scheduled for April 6-8, 2018.  This intensive 3-day training program for High School Sophomores and Juniors helps participants think critically about important issues and share ideas with talented peers, learn how to coordinate and lead community service projects, discuss the importance of good governance and civil society to the world, and finally, learn to think globally and explore issues that transcend national and cultural boundaries. This year there will be several new activities and opportunities for students to become engaged, including a tree planting with the National Arbor Day Foundation.  They will also be taking time to talk to students about different scholarship opportunities available through Rotary.  This really is a unique opportunity for your students skills that will serve them well in high school and beyond.
