Dear Bowmen Community,

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Quarters 2-4 Schedules

Student schedules will be visible in StudentVue and ParentVue after 3:00pm on Friday, November 6th. As explained in the video message, building our schedule this year was extraordinarily challenging. We fully recognize and understand that this is not an ideal situation to be in, but we have checked and know that every student is enrolled in courses that will move them toward high school graduation. Below is further information about the schedules and our next steps:

  • The schedule is complete and visible for the remainder of the school year. 
  • Numerous students received classes they did not forecast for. This occurred because of the constraints placed on our schedule as a result of attempting to meet the COVID-19 guidelines.   
  • Schedule changes will only occur for level misplacements. At this time, we can not accommodate any other schedule change requests.

We will have materials/textbook distribution for Quarter Two on the following dates/times.
