Good evening Currituck County Schools' Families. We hope this message continues to find everyone healthy and well. The PowerSchool Parent Portal has been opened back up this evening. Quarter 3 grades have been finalized for all students in grades 6-12. For the final grading period, teachers in grades 6-12 will enter grades into the gradebook for the 2-3 remote learning assignments per week completed and turned in. Zeros will be entered as place holders for work not submitted or completed. This will help parents to note whether or not work has been submitted, but these zeros will not negatively impact final grades. The state department of public instruction has been clear about their expectation that participation in remote learning can improve a students grade, but cannot harm it. A pre-recorded grading video will be released tomorrow to walk students and parents through the latest grading guidance and clarify questions. As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher and then school administration. District staff continue to work on plans for the end of the school year to include discussions about picking up personal belongings from schools, turning in school issued devices and materials, and of course topics like graduation and promotion ceremonies. We will provide additional updates soon. Don't forget that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Consider taking a moment to virtually send your appreciation to the teachers who have made a positive impact on your child's education! And thank you for the role you play in being your child's most important teacher. Thank you, and have a great evening.
