A. Your question may have been asked by someone else. The only time we change the comments is if you name someone.

Why are weighted grades not used for determining Green Award recipients? I personally take very challenging courses and unfortunately my grades have dropped a little bit due to them. It’s not fair for another student taking all regular courses and getting 100s in them to get the GPA award and not me, when I am taking some the hardest classes offered in the high school and would easily qualify for the award if weighted grades were used.

A. Weighted grades are used. However, we do not round grades.

Hi I really need an answer to this so please choose to answer this! I am in middle school and got a referral for a unfair reason and I was threatened that it will “stay on my permanent record”. So i’m wondering if colleges will see this middle school referral and if my life is ruined because i was being a kid for once in my life.

A. Colleges do not see referrals. Your discipline records are confidential, protected under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.

Why don’t teachers and monitors get in trouble for swearing? Are they allowed to say whatever they want to students? Maybe they don’t know its unprofessional or maybe they don’t know how to act appropriately. Either way they should know how to act respectfully or be trained on how to act around students. (I don’t know if there is a rule against administration swearing at students but there should be)

Written by on November 30, 2017 in Grapevine

A. No staff members should be swearing around children. Swearing is a bad habit, once learned it is hard to stop. That is why it is better if you don’t start.

I’m going to ask for the 2nd time: Is there a reason that styrofoam trays are used in the school cafeterias? When I was in elementary school, we always used reusable plastic lunch trays that were just washed after lunch every day, which is a lot less wasteful and a lot better for the environment. Based on the research I’ve done, it seems that it would ultimately be cheaper to have reusable lunch trays. Even if it wasn’t, does the school really care that much about having a few extra dollars than saving the environment? How about instead of spending money on electronic signs and 100% unnecessary chromebooks, we spend a few extra dollars to help out the environment?

A.  The food Service department is  self-sufficient and does not get any money from the taxpayers.  Biodegradable trays are very expensive and the department does not have the resources to wash and reuse trays anymore. Please call the food service department with any questions.
