Welcome to the Mission Valley Junior High monthly newsletter.
As you read this newsletter I’m sure your children are enjoying their Winter Break and hopefully recharging their batteries for a great second semester, just as our teachers and staff are. The junior high completed their first semester Finals right before the Holiday Break. Approximately, 3-4 weeks prior to Finals, a concentrated effort was made by staff and administration to encourage all students with D’s and F’s to take the necessary steps possible to achieve a passing grade in all of their classes. In walking around the commons during lunch, I get the opportunity to talk with students about a variety of subjects such as academics, family, sports, etc. When I get to students whose grades are declining, I will ask them: 1) Have you turned in all (or most) of your assignments? 2) Are you having trouble with the daily material or just the tests? 3) Have you spoken with the teacher of that subject to get extra help before or after school? and 4) Have you turned in extra credit work if offered by that teacher? As students begin their transition to high school, we encourage them to advocate for themselves when needing extra help. In speaking with our students and teachers the last couple of days before the Winter Break, I am pleased to announce that many of these students met the challenge of not having any F’s. However, education is an on-going process where both students and parents are encouraged to take ownership in monitoring their progress from the beginning and through the end of each grading period. 
On behalf of the Mission Valley Jr.-Sr. High School Staff, we want to thank you for the support and encouragement that you give your child each and every day and please join us as we challenge your child to be the best they can be! 
Mr. David Cromer
With the start of this new semester our Final Exams’ Exemption Policy has been revised. The staff and administration have worked hard these past few months to listen to parents, BOE members, and Site Council members on ideas to improve this policy while keeping its purpose of promoting student attendance. 
The BOE approved this policy at their December meeting.
 This is a summary of the policy. This summary of the policy includes a new expanded list of exempted absences (see below), how total absences will be calculated, the semester letter grade requirements, and (very important) the parental form to verify our new list of exempted absence types. GPA and Attendance Limits: (*New*): If a student has a D or an F course grade when semester grades are pulled for this policy, then they are not exempted from finals regardless of their overall semester GPA or attendance count. If GPA = 4.0, then the students can be absent up to 4 days If GPA = 3.5 - 3.949, then the student can be absent up to 3 days If GPA = 3.0 - 3.494, then the student can be absent up to 2 days Policy’s Excusable Absences: We have made significant changes to this section of the policy by adding additional types of absences that could be exempted. Please notice that verification of the given absence is required. 
Parents use a SCHOOL FORM to request approval and give verification of the absence(s). This SCHOOL FORM will also be on the district’s website, in the main office, and given to each student at the start of the second semester.

  • COLLEGE OR POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTION VISITS (*New*): Verification of attendance from the institution is required. 11/12th graders = up to 2 visits per semester. 9/10th graders = up to 1 visit per semester. Additional visitations may be approved by the HS Counselor
  • COURT APPEARANCES (*New*): Verification of attendance or court notification is required.
  • FUNERAL SERVICES: Verification of attendance or of the funeral is required 
  • ENROLLMENT EXAMS FOR ADMISSIONS (*New*): Documentation from the institution of attendance is required.
  • MEDICAL / THERAPY APPTs. (*New*): Medical office’s verification of attendance is required.
  • SURGERY / HOSPITALIZATION (*New*): Medical office’s verification of required dates for absence.
  • SCHOOL ACTIVITIES: No documentation required. MVHS verifies.
Method of Calculating the Total Days Absent: This is a change from the previous method used. The total number of days is determined by adding the number of periods absent (those not exempted) and dividing by 8 (the number of periods in a school day). Example: 28 periods divided by 8 = 3.5 days. 
Attendance Exemption Request Form: We ask parents to understand that while we have expanded the list of the types of exempted absences, verification is important and necessary to maintain the integrity of the policy. This policy revision requires the parent of the student to complete the form, attach any required verification documentation, and sign and turn the form into the school’s office in a timely manner.  
Links to this information are available on the left column of this page.
Please feel comfortable meeting me and asking for any assistance as we work together to give your student(s) the best education, support, and post-graduation opportunities
