Week of Respect October 5- 9

The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act  designates the week beginning the first Monday in October of each year as a “Week of Respect” in New Jersey. This week we will recognize this with theme days. Please note that Tuesday, students are encouraged to wear their grade level color: grade 6 is blue, grade 7 is red and grade 8 is white.

 

Tuesday morning – October 6, 2020

Today everyone is demonstrating their class spirit by wearing their grade level color. Tomorrow is “Hats off to Respect”, wear a hat of your choosing.

 

Wednesday morning – October 7, 2020

Today students are wearing hats to show respect for each other. Tomorrow is “Team up for Tolerance” show your support for your favorite team by wearing team apparel. 

 

Thursday morning– October 8, 2020

Today we are wearing team shirts to demonstrate tolerance for differences.  To recognize our last day of the Week of Respect we will show our school spirit tomorrow by wearing Warren Middle School spirit wear or our school colors Blue and White.

Attendance 

We have had several requests for students to be marked present when they are absent from school due to appointments, travel, etc.

While we recognize that students may still be able to complete work by accessing their Google classroom, and they are welcome to do so, our attendance will continue to be based on physical presence in school - the only exception being students who participate in full distance (Cohort D) learning.  This is not meant to be punitive, but our attendance continues to be based on the need to accurately account for students who are physically  present in the building should there be an emergency situation.

 

Attendance Notification 

Effective Tuesday, September 29, Parents and Guardians are now asked to request a child absence in the Genesis Parent Portal. An absence should be requested for a child in any cohort that cannot participate in school on a given day. You must still submit the daily Covid-19 form. You can access this feature on the Summary Screen of the Student Data tab.

 

Some information with respect to changes in Cohorts -

If your student is currently in Cohort A, B or C and is requesting to move to Cohort D (full distance) this request should be made to your child’s counselor and will be accommodated as this does not impact transportation, class size, or a change in Cohort groupings.  

 

If your student is in Cohort D (full distance) and would like to join Cohort A or B, this request will be considered.  However, there will be a 30 day time frame to determine feasibility as well as to set up scheduling, transportation, etc. We must ensure that we keep our class sizes at the level allowing for social distancing as well as meet the needs of the individual student. 

Once a change is made, it is final unless there are extenuating circumstances.
