Mesquite Postponement Guidelines

At Mesquite, we do not want our students to fall behind in earning credits, so our teachers are creating assignments for the students. 

•We expect that students will continue to earn credits at the rate of 1 per course for the next three weeks. 

•The work may be either in a paper packet, a textbook, or an online format. Packets may be picked up each Monday (Tuesday this week) to be returned by Friday of the same week.

•In addition, students who are taking a course through Acellus should continue to work in the course. I have changed the protocol for the next three weeks so that students can take unit exams at home without supervision. However, they must TAKE NOTES and show them to the teacher upon return to school. If there are no notes turned it, the student will be repositioned back to the beginning of the unit.

•We are asking parents to do three things over this to remind students that this is not a vacation, but a different way of doing business.

a)  Supervise your son/daughter and keep them home.  The purpose of this is to reduce                         contact with others.  It defeats the purpose if students are out and about.  

b) Provide students with the materials they need to complete the homework - notebooks,                        pencils, etc.  If you don’t have these items, please let us know and we can. 

c) Monitor their work and assist them in turning it in. We don't want students to lose three                        weeks' worth of credit.

 If transportation is an issue, please contact the office and we can send the packets to you electronically.
