Greetings Shannon Students, Parents & Guardians!!
As BISD’s only fully Blended and Personalized campus, moving to exclusively on-line platforms have been near seamless. Our teachers have made contact with each of their students and ascertained which of our students needed a device to continue working on their 3rd quarter classes. To date, we have made home visits to 62 students’ residences delivering Chromebooks, HotSpots, and/or food. I am happy to report that every Shannon student and their teachers are in constant communication through Remind 101, Google Voice phone numbers, and their respective course’s on-line platform. Our teachers use Canvas, Google Classroom, Edgenuity, Class Craft, IXL Math, and others.
This past Friday was the end of our 3rd quarter grading period. Yes, our school buildings have been closed since March 6th, but our students have been hard at work, with the help of their teachers, completing their work in the safety of their own homes, since March 16th. As a campus on the quarter system, we look to graduate students at the end of each quarter. This quarter is no different. I am thrilled to announce that we had eleven seniors complete their graduation requirements on Friday and are now Graduates of Shannon High School!!! We will be in touch with those students and their families this week to congratulate them.
Tomorrow, Monday, March 30th, we will begin our 4th, and final quarter of the year. Report cards for the 3rd quarter will be available through the Parent portal later this week. I am confident that the spirit of Shannon High School will continue to thrive within every student and staff member, and we will finish the school year strong. Indeed, words cannot adequately express how proud we all are of our students, as they continue working hard towards earning credits and keeping their eyes on the prize, GRADUATION!
I know that you continue to receive information from the district. As you have seen, much of that information is applicable to every campus in the district EXCEPT Shannon. I will continue to communicate with you via Skyward E-Blasts. Whenever you receive information from the district that seems to contradict what you received from me, please know that BISD is honoring Shannon’s uniqueness and you should depend on the accuracy you receive from our campus updates.
Please know that we are looking forward to getting back to school to continue working, face to face, with the incredible young adults who call Shannon their home away from home.
Please don’t hesitate to call me with questions and I will return your call the same day.
Principal, Shannon High School
