NAEP 2019 PARENT/GUARDIAN NOTIFICATION LETTER

Grades 4 and 8 – Mathematics and Reading Assessments

Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

Menifee Elementary will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on Grade 4 (February 13, 2019) and Grade 8 (February 14, 2019). NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

Please see article for complete letter.

Solar Eclipse and Eye Safety

A total solar eclipse is probably the most spectacular astronomical event that most people will experience in their lives. There is a great deal of interest in watching eclipses, but it must be done safely.  Because of this exceptional opportunity, there is concern that people will be more likely to stare at the Sun during this event.  Improper viewing of the Sun during an eclipse can result in eye injuries such as the development of "eclipse blindness" or retinal burns.  Please see article for more info.

No School 8/21/2017

After further review and safety considerations of the entire school community, the Menifee County School District will not be in session on Monday, August 21st.  Please see article for more info.

Welcome to the first Menifee County Schools Student Code of Conduct Handbook!  It is our hope that this handbook will not only provide information about our expectations for students, but will also serve as a means of informing you of all the programs the Menifee County School District and our collaborative community agencies provide to our students and families.  We want the handbook to be useful to you and hope you will refer to it throughout the year. If you have ideas for other issues we should address in our handbook, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your input.  This is your handbook!

The Menifee County Schools Student Code of Conduct Handbook will be located in the Quick Links section of the left of our website, as well as our Forms & Links page.  A direct link to the Menifee County Schools Student Code of Conduct Handbook can be found here.
