March 8th Announcements

Hello, Eagles, This is Mrs. Keipp with four updates in construction, time change, grades, and other news:

  1. Construction updates: Work is on schedule to be completed by July 2020. Remember to practice safe travel behaviors as a driver, pedestrian, cyclist, etc. (Please see the e-mail for a sampling of photographs from the construction zones):
    1. Auditorium: Grouting work in the auditorium is done, which is why La Roda has had fewer pick-up trucks and machines.  We learned this week that there will be a new floor installed.
    2. South Gym: Grouting is 90% completed and has been halted due to the discovery of asbestos in a now quarantined boiler room area. We learned this week that in addition to a new floor and bleachers, new lockers and ceiling will be installed.
  2. Time Change: On Sunday, March 10, at 2 am, daylight saving time begins. Remember to set your clocks forward one hour.
  3. Grades:
    1. Ten-week/midterm  grades are due next Friday, March 15!
    2. The eligibility date for athletics will be March 20th.
    3. Schoology: Parents/Guardians, Would you like weekly updates of your student’s activity in Schoology and/or be notified of overdue assignments? These links have for directions for a weekly e-mail digest!
