End of Year MJHS Student Check-Out Procedures

End of Year MJHS Student Check-Out Procedures

 

Dear Students and Parents, 

As the school year winds down, we want to share the protocols and schedules we will ask all students to follow in order to check-out of school this year. To comply with state and local health guidelines, we ask that only the student and one responsible adult enter the building on the appropriately scheduled day and time to complete the check-out procedures (see alpha divisions below). Please adhere to the guidelines as we try to keep everyone healthy and safe. 

School check-out will involve making sure that the following items have all been completed:

 

  • Clean-out hall locker 

  • Clean-out gym locker

  • Return ALL school books (classroom & library)

  • Return Chromebook and charging cord

  • Return instrument and sheet music 

  • Settle student’s school account - refunds and/or paying lunch or other unpaid fees

  • If desired you may still purchase or check on your purchase of a yearbook ($30)  

  • Check Lost and Found table

 

After reading the above list, some students may see that they have already taken care of all these items and did NOT check out a Chromebook for “at home learning”. If that is the case, there is no need to come into the school during the student check-out days outlined below.

 

Helpful Hints:

  • Begin by cleaning out your lockers; please remove all items. It would be a good idea to bring a backpack or bag with you to carry out your personal items. Garbage cans will be available for things you just want to toss.

  • To return a Chromebook (if you checked one out), library books, classroom textbooks or any other school books of any kind, go to the library. Please enter through the door in the 200 hall across from the restrooms.

  • To return a band or orchestra instrument go to the classroom and return it with the teacher.

  • To settle your student’s school account please stop in at the financial office and speak with Mrs. Carey. She can let you know if you owe any unpaid fees or have a school lunch balance due. If you would like to take care of these items ahead of time you can call and visit with Mrs. Carey at 801-489-2894. She will also be able to assist you with receiving a refund for any canceled activities (this will happen automatically if you don’t call ahead of time). 

  • FYI - Yearbooks will not be available until mid-June and we are planning a drive-through pick up for those once they come in. More information will come at a later date.  If your school fees are paid, you can still purchase a yearbook with Mrs. Carey in the financial office for $30.

  • Be sure and remember to check the Lost and Found - unclaimed items will be donated to charity. 

 

To help limit how many students are in the building at any given time - Please follow the provided date and time schedule. Remember to keep a six-foot distance from others while you are in the building.

 

Wednesday, May 20th:

 

8-9 Last Names beginning with A

9-10 Last Names beginning with Ba-Bn

10-11 Last Names beginning with Bo-Bz

11-12 Last Names beginning with Ca-Ci

12-1 Last Names beginning with Cj-Cz

Please follow the above schedule as closely as possible. If you are unable to come at your assigned time, you may contact the school to arrange another time. (801-489-2892 ext. 0) 

 

Remember to stay current with your grades until the last day of school - May 22nd.  

Again, if you have already completed the checklist items from above and do not need to turn anything in, then you DO NOT need to come to the school to check-out. Have a GREAT summer!!!

Grading Procedures for 4th Term

Submitted by nate.whitney on Mon, 05/11/2020 - 15:37

As we approach the end of the term, we want to be sure everyone is aware of the adjusted procedures that are in place for 4th term grading due to the unique challenges and difficulties of the COVID-19 school dismissal. In an effort to minimize the anxiety and stress felt by students, parents and teachers, we are allowing students a choice regarding how their final grade in each class will be recorded on their transcript for 4th term. At the end of the term, a teacher will submit a letter grade for the class. After the grade is submitted by the teacher, the student can choose to keep the standard grade given or change a passing letter grade to a “P” grade, which will count for academic credit but will not affect GPA. (Please Note - All letter grades in the D range will automatically be convereted to a P without a request being made by the student) If a student has not completed enough work to receive a passing grade this term they will receive an “I” (incomplete) grade and will need to make it up during summer offerings (Information on Summer School TBA) or in the fall when we return to school. (For 9th grade students, please see the additional information at the bottom of this page)  All students are encouraged to make sure they communicate with their teachers during these final weeks to ensure they will pass their classes and receive credit.

 

Click this link to see a video that explains the grading procedures for 4th Term - 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kseXB9iCXvy0j3JqgnJp-_UZkpl3b4sZ/view?usp=sharing

 

How to Request a P Grade Change

As outlined above - if your final grade for 4th term is a passing letter grade A through C- you can request a grade change to a “P” (pass) to be recorded on your school transcript in place of the letter grade given by the teacher. All grades in the D range will automatically be changed to a P by teachers and no request is needed. To request a changed grade, wait until grades are finalized on May 22nd and then write an email to your counselor requesting the change. The email must include each class name and the corresponding grade you are requesting to be changed to a P grade. Please Note that your request must be made by Friday, May 29th, one week after grades have been finalized. You will receive a confirmation email back from your counselor when the grade change(s) has been completed.

 

Additional Grading Information for 9th Grade Students to Consider 

Information from the Utah State School Board of Education for 9th grade students considering how pass (P) or incomplete (I) grades will affect their athletic eligibility or eligibility for scholarships and/or financial aid:

- Currently, the NCAA calculates Ps in two different ways. (1) The P grade will be calculated as a 2.3 as long as it has the effect of raising the students GPA. In this case it will have the effect of increasing their overall GPA. (2) If a student’s GPA is above a 2.3, all Ps will transfer as credit, but not affect their GPA.

 - There are likely also other private scholarships that affect a small number of students that operate under similar circumstances.

 - There are some professional applications (including the health professions) in some institutions that don’t award credit for entry to students earning a P in a particular course.

 - The Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) administered scholarships (including both Regent’s and New Century) will be unaffected by P/I, nor will local scholarships administered by Utah IHEs.

 - Federal financial aid guidelines are dependent on the pace of credit earning versus GPA and so will presumably be unaffected by P/I.

  • To settle your student’s school account please stop in at the financial office and speak with Mrs. Carey. She can let you know if you owe any unpaid fees or have a school lunch balance due. If you would like to take care of these items ahead of time you can call and visit with Mrs. Carey at 801-489-2894. She will also be able to assist you with receiving a refund for any canceled activities (this will happen automatically if you don’t call ahead of time). 
  • FYI - Yearbooks will not be available until mid-June and we are planning a drive-through pick up for those once they come in. More information will come at a later date.  If your school fees are paid, you can still purchase a yearbook with Mrs. Carey in the financial office for $30.
  • Be sure and remember to check the Lost and Found - unclaimed items will be donated to charity

Dear Students and Parents,

 

MJHS Virtual Talent Show 

Singing, dancing, martial arts, uni-cycling, baking, stand-up comedy, extreme sports, etc.! We want to see your talents and we are offering prizes for the top acts! Here's how you can participate: Send a one and a half minute video (or shorter) of your talent to Mrs. Mohler: jessica.mohler@nebo.edu with your name and grade by Friday, May 8th. The compiled talent show will be sent out to everyone the following week. Please note that videos that are longer than 1.5 min. may be cut down for time. 

 

Academic Progress - TAKE ACTION NOW if Needed! 

Once again we want to remind everyone to finish strong… We have been so impressed with the level of engagement and progress we have had so far with “at home learning”. Keep up the great work! Please be aware that those students that don’t have a passing grade right now in one or more classes (have an I grade) need to immediately contact their teacher by email. They need to simply ask - “what do I need to do to pass” and then be willing to respond and work with the teacher. Teachers want every student to be successful and are committed to respond and work with ALL students to make sure they can pass their classes!  If this applies to you or your student, please know that teachers will work out a plan to get you to pass and get credit for this term! We are so grateful for the positive support you have all given us over the past month plus. We live in an amazing community and we are so grateful for your support.

 

Yearbook Purchase 

Yearbooks for this unique year have not been canceled, however, after speaking with our publisher, it looks like the printing of our yearbooks has been delayed due to Coronavirus. Because of this we are planning a “drive through” yearbook distribution as soon as they come in (likely in June). If you haven't yet purchased a yearbook, but would like to do so, we still have some extra copies available and you can order one by calling Mrs. Carey in the financial office and paying through a credit card transaction - 801-489-2892 ext. 3.

 

Social-Emotional

We are also very concerned about the social and emotional health of our students at this time. Our counseling department is working hard to meet with students via phone calls or video conferencing. If you would like to meet with a counselor please reach out directly by email or phone - 7th grade Eric Baum, 8th Grade Kirsten Hullinger, 9th Grade Dave Murphy, Responsive Services, Kate Henderson, School Psychologist, Amanda Bushman.
