Upcoming School Dates:
Dec 20-Jan 2: Christmas Break (No School)
Jan 12: Last day to submit work
Middle of Year Acadeince testing will begin on January 8th. If you tested at the beginning of the year, please reach out to your mentor to get that scheduled and done as soon as possible. We have a lot of students to test and want to make sure we have time for everyone.
Important: Garfield Homeroom / Attendance
Be sure to have your child respond to the weekly discussion post in the Garfield Homeroom in Canvas. The questions are posted each Friday, and you have until the following Friday to answer them. Responding each week provides Garfield County School District with a weekly “attendance log” and helps them have a connection with students. This is an important part of your child’s attendance with Garfield County.
If you have any questions about the weekly Homeroom questions, please contact your mentor.
Flex Submission Dates
Here are the Flex Direct and Flex Independent submission dates for the 1st semester. Be sure to submit your student’s worksheets on time as this tracks attendance and progress.
December 8 – (Kindergarten – Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies)
January 5 – (No Kindergarten Submission)
To find helpful information about Flex Direct or Flex Independent courses, log into the Family Resource Center and go to the Curriculum Orientation. From the sidebar menu in the Flex Direct and Flex Independent sections, you will find FAQs, which include submission instructions and a submission video.
Portfolio Submissions for 2nd Quarter
All portfolios need to be submitted no later than January 12th to give the teachers time to review and grade them.
The guidelines for portfolios are as follows:
- 5-8 portfolio items per subject.
- Items need to show student work, and examples could include worksheets, reports, tests/quizzes, science projects, etc. Remember that portfolio Items need to be the student’s actual work, not a learning log or description of what the student has been doing.
- Portfolio items need to be grade-level work.
- Portfolio items need to demonstrate student work over the course of 2 months.
Ordering is now open for 2nd semester and will be open until January 31st. We can’t guarantee any items will arrive by Christmas. For all the ordering types except reimbursement, you can submit one order per semester per student.
Second semester ordering period is Dec 1 – Jan 31.
