Attendance

I would like to encourage you to set up your child’s appointments and lessons on the Mondays we do not have school.  I realize this is not always possible but when it works out it would be a great benefit for your child not to miss school. There is a lot happening each day and it is hard to miss out and keep up.  Just a reminder; please have your child bring a doctor’s confirmation notice of appointment back to school when your child returns after an appointment. We want to increase our attendance in order to help our students increase their achievement and we appreciate your support in this matter.

iPads (Grades 9-12)

For the 2014-15 school year, we are very excited to continue implementing iPads into the classrooms for freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors at Pelican Rapids High School. These students will receive iPad training during the first week of school. In this mailing, you will find the following items:

·   Common Questions and answers regarding the student use of the iPad.

·   iPad Handbook is included and available on the school website. Parents and students need to read the handbook.

·   Students need to return the student and parent permission form, the health/enrollment form, MSHSL form, and free and reduced form before they can receive their iPad. Forms should be turned in to Mrs. Hoadley or the high school office.  

If you have any questions regarding the iPad, please contact the high school.  We look forward to a great school year and are excited to help our students be college and career ready.
