Pemberton Learning Community: Pursuing Excellence One Child at a Time
Please see the following updates in regards to attendance, grading, student lockers, and medications:
Attendance: Please ensure that your child is checking in online with every teacher, every day and completing work as assigned. Every Thursday will continue to be a reinforcement day, however we still need all students to check in online for each class.
Grading: All missing and/or late assignments must be submitted to teachers no later than this Friday, May 29th. If a student needs additional time, they are encouraged to make this request to his/her individual teachers in advance. With that said, please be advised that school is in session until June 17th and students need to log in daily to check in with every teacher.
Personal Belongings/Lockers: To provide you with an opportunity to pick up student belongings left behind in lockers, at Newcomb Middle School we are offering curb-side pick-up on Wednesday, June 3rd from 8am-11am and Thursday, June 4th from 12pm-3pm. Parents will also be able to drop off any school-issued supplies at the same time. Safety and security remains our first priority, therefore we ask you to follow the procedure listed below:
1. Please form a single file line by pulling your vehicle up to the main entrance.
2. Remain in your vehicle.
3. Pull up and provide us with your last name and locker number. We will do our best to make this process quick, however we ask for your patience as we gather your belongings. Please be advised that if you have medications that have been stored with the nurse, they will be distributed back to you during this time.
4. If you have school issued supplies to drop off such as a library book, text books, etc., please place them in the drop box as you exit.
*Please note: You do not need to return your Chromebook at this time as you will need it for 7th grade.
