Today in study hall at High School West, one of the monitors made me wait to get a pass signed to work on a project because I was late a few days ago (because my locker wouldn’t open, which I explained to the monitors at the time). I am an accelerated honors student, and needed to finish a 300 point project using the computers. I think this is ridiculous, and want to know if monitors job description includes making the lives of students more difficult.

What is Shens grading policy? specifically the idea of middle schoolers having the ability to re do all testing as they wish? or is that a myth? what is the homework grading policy> is the the hour limitation still in action? is Shen reconsidering anything about their grading policy, due, to many of the changes in the grading policies that are flooding around us. Thanks, sorry this question is a longer one.

Having campus security directing traffic by Koda and Gowana at dismissal does NOT help at all! In order to effectively direct traffic, I believe you give traffic from every direction an opportunity to go. I sat for eight minutes yesterday while cars from every other direction were allowed to pass…THEN since we were there so long, we then had to wait for all the buses to leave. It took me 25 minutes to get from Koda to the other side of campus HSE. Poor traffic direction makes an already busy situation worse. Very frustrating!

The parking lot at Skano/Tesago is out of control. Parents are not following the rules for student drop off and are letting their kids off in the parking lot or are parking illegally in handicap spots. If parents are going to drive their kids to school they need to follow the signs for student drop off in the back. If we expect our kids to follow rules then parents need to lead by example and follow them too.

A. Good point.
