Students with an F or I from first quarter:
If you had an F or I (incomplete) for any course for first quarter, you are required to attend teacher office hours on Wednesdays for the month of January. You can use that time to work on missing assignments if you don't have any questions for the teachers. Students who engage with teachers have much higher grades than those who are not showing up to Google Meets or are not complete assignments. We are doing this at both Stanwood High School and Lincoln Hill High School. We will take attendance for these required office hours.

Inclement Weather Update:

If we experience inclement weather on a school day, learning will not stop for Stanwood High School.  Every Thursday morning at 7:10 a.m., teachers drop work in their Google Classrooms for the students.  The expectation is that students will continue to work on assignments that were already delivered.
**The teachers will hold Google Meets if power and connectivity permits.  We will still be able to count the day as a school day as long as students have assignments available.

The Yearbook class needs your help. 
You can be involved in submitting photos for our yearbook this year.  Please review the attached document to see how you can submit photos.
