Please see the attached letter from Mrs. Herron:
Dear Parents and Students:
In an effort to align with our KFCS's mission statement of "100% graduation is our expectation", we are changing the length of 7th period starting January 30, 2017. Seventh period will now continue until 3:30 p.m. starting 2nd semester. Please make a note of this and plan your day accordingly.
We are making this change to enable our students to be successful in school. This last semester we invited students to take advantage of this time built into our schedule from 3:05-3:30 p.m. to make up tests, redo assignments and turn in missing work. This approach has produced limited success. Therefore, we will be requiring students who need this extra time to use these additional minutes of 7th period to stay on track for graduation.
Students who have demonstrated success in their classes first semester will be dismissed early at 3:05 for these days. Students who are failing one or more classes at first semester will be required to stay in their 7th period class until the end of the school day at 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday and Friday's schedule will remain the same. Please do not hesitate to call the main office at (541) 883-4710 if you have any questions. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you. We believe this will better enable all our students at Klamath Union High School to graduate successfully. Thank you in advance for your willingness to work with us for the success of your child.
Charlene Herron, Principal
Klamath Union High School
Have a great day and warm and safe weekend!
