Good afternoon Buffs!
As teachers are reaching out to our students via email and phone we have a request for all students/parents. If you haven’t heard from a Southeast teacher since Spring Break we need you to email Amanda Martinez (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your updated contact information. Grades have been frozen as of the end of the third nine weeks. For example, if you received a C in your History class, your final grade at the end of the semester will be no lower than a C. However, teachers are working with students individually to improve those third nine week grades. We can’t do that if we don’t have your correct contact info! Please email (email@example.com) with your correct contact information if you haven’t heard from a Southeast staff member so we can make those connections with you!
Stay safe Buffs – we miss you all!
