ASD4 has updated our policy to reflect this joint advisory opinion. All medications, over-the-counter and prescription, MUST be brought to school by a parent or guardian in the original packaging. Per policy, students are not allowed to carry any type of medication during school hours unless the appropriate permission forms have been completed, are on file and have been approved by the school administrator.

“What should be in grades? Grades should include individual achievement only based on the published learning goals for the school/district.
What should not be in grades? Effort, attitude, behavior, attendance, punctuality, tardiness, group work, and so forth should not be in grades, unless they are specifically stated in the standards for a grade or course. These should be assessed and reported on separately.”
~ from How to Grade for Learning, O’Connor
At Mount Lebanon, our teachers strive to assess student learning based on students’ progress toward the standards of learning. As you look at your child’s standards-based report card, you will see information on your child’s progress with standards that were taught that nine weeks. You will also see a section on lifelong learning skills that addresses students’ work ethic, etc. If you have questions about your child’s growth as a learner, his/her teacher is a phone call or an email away. Ask them.
Thanks for your help with this good health practice.
· Did you know a parent had to swerve into the grass to keep from hitting a car during afternoon pick-up recently? Why? Because the driver, a MLES parent, was texting on her smartphone and suddenly realized she was about to hit another car.
· We have asked repeatedly – to the point of begging parents – to refrain from talking and texting during car rider drop-off/pick-up. I am asking again each person driving within our MLES driveway to put down his/her phone for the safety of all.
· We live in a selfish world so some folks will not adhere to this. However, I am asking you to put down phones, iPads, iPods etc. while driving at MLES so we do not have an accident. Law enforcement will be called if there is an accident.
Our school’s safety, especially your child’s, is my biggest concern. I hope you will get on board with this request. If you have a question about this, please call me at 403-2402.
Thank you to all of those who came to our Parent Meeting. We appreciate your questions and your support as we move forward in Standards Based Grading.
