Friday Folders

December 2, 2022


Have a wonderful weekend!


Attendance and Illness

Please call or email the school office if your child will be absent. You can email Ms. Boyajian at and our nurse, Ms. Edgar, can be reached at

Parent Reminder

Please make sure your child has a reusable water bottle for school. It is important that students have access to water, and students should not be accessing the main office, counseling or the health office for cups. Water fountains are still not in use due to COVID. Thank you. 

Important Notice on Student Attendance:

Student attendance is marked based on their overall daily attendance and only daily attendance appears on report cards. Teachers log attendance in PowerSchool for the class that meets first in the day. The attendance office does not update attendance for individual periods at this grade level.

Please know that teachers only have the option to select unexcused absences or tardies (AU or TU), which is why you may see an unexcused absence on your end. Only the attendance office can update to an excused absence with contact from a parent or guardian.

Therefore, please continue to send any absences, early dismissals or late arrival emails to Whitney Boyajian, Attendance Clerk, at


School Photo Retake Day - December 6

Students who were absent on the original photo day will have their picture taken on Tuesday.

To order for the first time (if your child was absent): Go to and select "Order Online" then "preorder School Portraits" Enter Password: "robbins22" then enter additional information.  ONLINE PAYMENTS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE BEFORE PHOTO DAY AND UP TO 3 DAY AFTER PHOTO DAY. 

*Students brought home their photo packets. Please ask your child for the packet if you haven't received it. Students who want a retake, need to return the entire, uncut packet to the photographer on Tuesday. 


Date Reminders

Hello, Parents and Guardians,

With so much going on, I thought I should send you some mid-month reminders! 

Paid Meals

I wanted to be sure you saw the important change about meals. December 23 is the last day for free meals. Paid meals begin on January 3. Please see this note that was previously sent home by the district.
