Parent Questions

How do I register my child? 5th graders will be given forms to choose their electives. They will also be given enrollment forms to turn in. Parents can pay fees at Pre-Registration or at Summer Registration. Students will be given their schedules at Summer Registration. If your child is not coming from a Chelsea zone elementary school, you will need to make an appointment to register your child during the summer.

How are parent/teacher conferences held? Parent conferences are held with a group of teachers that your child has or with an individual teacher you may need to speak with. These conferences typically take place before and after school.

If my child is struggling, who do I contact? First of all, contact the teacher. If your child does not let the teacher know he/she is struggling, it is difficult to help. You can also contact the counselor. She has contacts for tutors and can give you information about testing, scheduling, and working with your child on improving his or her study skills.

How do I check out or excuse an absence? Check outs: The person checking the student out comes to the front office and presents a picture ID. Once his or her identity is verified, the person checking the student out will sign the Check out log and give the reason for checking out. Excuses: A signed note from a parent or doctor must be received in the attendance office no later than 3 days after the student returns. Excuses (and lunch money) are turned in to the first period teacher each morning.
