*updated February 26, 2021*
Dear Field Community:
We truly hope that you and your family are remaining safe and healthy.
Please be advised that the building repairs necessary to open Field after last week’s winter storm are still underway but have not been completed.
For this reason, all students will continue participating in virtual classes next week, beginning Monday, March 1, 2021 (and until further notice). However, we will keep you informed on when face-to-face instruction will resume after the necessary repairs are complete.
Please know that we are eagerly awaiting the re-opening of our building, and we appreciate your continued patience and support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the campus at 713-867-5190.
Virtual Pre-K & Kinder Round-Up:
Join us via Zoom on Thursday, February 4th, at 6pm.
It is our campus goal to ensure that every student attends school regularly and on time. School begins for at 7:30. Students are considered tardy when they are not in their classrooms ready to receive instruction at that time. Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:15. Any student arriving at school after 7:30 a.m. are considered tardy.
Beginning February 1st, all tardies will be documented in PowerSchool. The following consequences may be the result for students with excessive or habitual tardies:
The student may be detained in a waiting room until it is
possible for the student to enter the classroom without disrupting the teaching and learning of the class.
--Students with excessive tardies will receive a conduct cut on their report card per our campus student handbook.
--Students on transfer to our school may be denied their transfer for the upcoming school year.
--A parent conference may be required with campus administration.
Tardiness is disruptive to the learning environment and has a negative impact on student achievement. It is our goal that students attend school and arrive on time every day to provide them the best opportunity of academic success!
Thank you for your help in this matter.
Cycle 3 Progress Reports:
Progress Reports go home on Friday, January 15, 2021. Face-to-face students will receive a paper copy, and virtual students and parents are encouraged to view their grades via PowerSchool. Virtual parents may request paper copies.
Cold Weather Arrival Provisions:
If the temperature is below 50 degrees in the morning, all students will go to their homeroom classes starting at 7:15. We will have staff in the front and in the hallways. Teachers will not be outside but will be in their classrooms by 7:25. The students will be in the classrooms by themselves until 7:25, but we will have staff in the hallways to monitor. On these days, teachers will need to check each student's temperature in their classroom.
