Important Notice about After-school Supervision
All students remaining on campus after 3:15 who are not in a supervised activity will be required to wait outside in the front of the school . Students attending tutoring, club meetings, and other supervised activities must be in those classrooms by 3:30.
At 4:00, students remaining on campus will be escorted to wherever detention students are located (normally the cafetorium) and will participate in supervised study hall until their ride arrives. At 4:30 all students will be walked to the fence in front of the school.
Student Drop Off
Under NO circumstances should students be dropped off on the street in the front of the school. Cones will be placed on the street to prevent drop-offs. All students should be driven to the drop-off circle on the north side of the building. There will be no exceptions.
Viewing Grades and Homework
Your child's grades as well as homework assignments will be posted in the Pinnacle Internet Viewer accessed through the Parent Portal.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools provides a Parent Portal section on its website to allow parents to view student information, including schedules and grades. In order to access this portal, you must VISIT our school to obtain a Parent PIN. WE CANNOT give the PIN on the phone or to a student. You will be asked to show ID and sign a form that will be put in your student's file to show that you have obtained the PIN. You will also need your student's ID number to set up access.
We strongly recommend that you consult the user's guide, which can be downloaded from the Parent Portal, before registering. The password parameters are very specific and the registration will not be successful unless every step is carefully followed.
Policy regarding releasing students before school is dismissed:
No student is to be released from school in the last half hour of the day without authorization from the Executive Director or his designee. Student absence from class in the last half hour of the day will be counted as unexcused. Parents, please keep this in mind when scheduling appointments.
