I want to update you on some important items as we move into the final six-weeks of the 2019-2020 school year. First, thank you for your help and support during the process of moving our curriculum and instruction to an online teaching platform. These are truly uncertain and extraordinary times.
5th Six-Weeks Grades
During the 5th Six-Weeks, which began the week prior to spring break, there were many challenges as we migrated to an online learning environment. Taking this into consideration, we developed a grade average procedure for the 5th Six-Weeks designed to help your student’s average. Teachers are going to compare each student’s final 5th Six-Weeks average to the average of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Six-Weeks. Your student’s recorded grade for the 5th Six- Weeks will be the higher of those two averages. If the class is a semester class, the 5th Six-Weeks grade will not be lower than the student’s 4th Six-Weeks grade.
6th Six-Weeks Grades
During the 6th Six-Weeks grading period it is imperative that we have authentic grading and hold students accountable. Flour Bluff High School teachers will use the following grading guidelines:

Dear FB Hornets,
First of all,…..we miss you! We miss seeing your sweet faces, we miss your craziness, and your humor. And yes, we miss your stubbornness, your complexities, and your impetuousness!
You might be wondering what your counselors are doing during this time of COVID-19 isolation. While we are unable to see you, even in a virtual classroom, please know that we are working behind the scenes, checking credits, monitoring your grades, providing a means for credit recovery, and working on your schedules for next year. Many of you will receive emails from us, asking for a form for this or that, or just to ask questions about courses you chose for the fall. YOU are our business.
We encourage you to use this time in a very positive way. Since you are spending more time with your family, use this time to actively engage with them! You have their undivided attention…..use it! Play games, have great conversations! Teach them your tech savvy skills. If you have access to grandparents, give them a call… even better, FaceTime them. You would be surprised how meaningful it is for them to hear from you and to see you! Make your bed each morning and put on real clothes! Believe it or not, doing these things sets the tone for the day. Setting the tone for the day also sets up a positive attitude that impacts the rest of the day.
In a real way, you are practicing a way of life that would have come a bit later for most of you. Whether you are planning on attending college or trade school, or going straight into the work force or military, this is how it will be in the sense that you must have self-discipline. It takes self-discipline to get up early to “attend classes.” You don’t have your teachers looking over your shoulder, reminding you of things you should do. It is all up to you. It will all be up to you when you are on your own, long after this situation is over.
We know that Flour Bluff Hornets are special. You are special in that you are resilient and hard working. You have CPH after all……Class, Pride, Heart. You will rise to the occasion and come out on the other side stronger than ever.
Again, please know that you are on our minds and in our hearts. We would love to hear from you, even if it is just to say, “Hi.” We can’t wait to see all of you again! Please contact us if you need anything or have any questions.
Hang in there!
