Dear Hayes Parents,
Before departing for Thanksgiving break, we wanted to pass along a few reminders:
Please Complete Step-2 Regardless of Your Choice: Staying online? Starting in-person? Either way, please register at GLcomets.net/StepTwo. We are hoping to do some individualized follow-up with non-respondents, so if you complete the registration, you help make that possible by reducing the number of phone calls that would be needed. It also gives us a more clear picture... lets us know that everyone made a choice... means fewer last-minute issues. Phone calls to non-respondents will commence on Monday, November 30th.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: Hayes Middle School Parent-Teacher Conferences will be taking place on Tuesday, December 1st, Thursday, December 3rd from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm., and Friday, December 4th from 11:30 am - 2:30pm. Conferences will be utilizing Zoom for the meetings with teachers this trimester. Sign-up through PTCFast.com is now open. Please go to Hayes P/T conference sign up to register for conferences. Once you have completed scheduling all of your conferences, an appointment confirmation email will be sent. Simply click on the Zoom Conference Link for each teacher (in your email) at your conference time and you will be admitted into the teachers “waiting room” for your personal parent teacher conference. **Please keep your confirmation email as your notice of when your conferences are and to have your zoom links available. The middle school will not have a copy of your conference schedule.
End of Trimester Date: The first trimester will officially end on Friday, December 18th; the second trimester will begin on Monday, January 4th. At Hayes, students keep their core content (Math, Science, Social Studies, and English) teachers all-year; in addition, students keep the same teachers for year-long elective courses, which include: Band, Choir, Links, and high school credit Foreign Language. Therefore, the only classes that will rotate for the start of the second trimester include our trimester-long elective courses and Health for our 7th grade students. The rotation will occur within the same hour of your student’s current elective course(s).
Classes Resume: Classes resume virtually on Monday, November 30th.
In closing, we hope that you and your family are able to have a relaxing and safe Thanksgiving. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, or feedback.
Dave and Eric
