Current Mailing Regarding Student Demographic Sheets

September 30, 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians;

Included in this mailing are what we call demographic sheets for your registered student(s)- this is the pink piece of paper. This is the information that is housed in our Student Management System that helps us to communicate with parents and guardians, as well as other pertinent information about your child.  Understandingly, this information is critical to our success as a school.  Each year we find ourselves looking at other ways to work differently, and in this case verify and update this information.  We also have made some of our goals to streamline the process of communications with parents and students, explore cost saving measures and reduce our carbon footprint.

With this in mind, we ask you to take the following actions:

  1. Please take a few minutes to review this information on the demographics sheet and verify its accuracy.
  2. Please make necessary changes directly on the sheet so that when it is returned we can update your information in the system. Please write clearly. If no changes are necessary, please write “OK” on the top of the page.
  3. Please be sure to provide us with a valid email address. We plan on sending most communications, similar to the PSAT letter enclosed in this mailing, out via email to achieve our goals stated above. We are also planning a newsletter and email blasts for announcements.  
  4. Please have your student return the pink demographic sheet (with or without changes) to his or her grade level administrator’s secretary no later than October 21st, 2016. Failure to do so potentially puts all of us in a situation where miscommunications would be the norm and not the exception.

We do realize there will be occasions where mailings are necessary and when some information simply cannot be communicated via email. We will continue to honor those commitments.  However, by taking the steps above, you will be helping us promote 21st century living skills where information can be communicated quickly and easily, keeping all necessary stakeholders informed.

 Please help us with achieving our goals of increased communications, exploring cost saving measures and acting responsible to our environment. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the high school and speak with your grade level administrator.   Thank you.

 Sincerely,

 Louis. T. Riolo

Current Mailing Regarding PSAT/NMSQT on October 19th

September 30, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Carmel High School will be offering the PSAT/NMSQT to 10th and 11th grade students on Wednesday, October 19th

The PSAT/NMSQT prepares students for the college preparatory exams that most will take as upperclassmen. 11th graders taking the PSAT/NMSQT will also be eligible for National Merit Scholarship qualification based on their results.

Students will be given PSAT/NMSQT student guides in their English classes in late September. We encourage them to peruse these materials prior to test day.
 
On October 19th, 10th and 11th graders should follow their normal transportation schedule. Students will report to their assigned classrooms provided on a list at the Library and Bridge entrances. The exam will begin at 7:10 AM and run approximately three hours and thirty minutes. Students will then attend periods 6 to 9 after the exam.

 On October 19th, 9th and 12th graders will follow their transportation routines on a three hour and 30 minute delay. 9th and 12th graders will attend periods 6 to 9.

 Dismissal for all students will be at 1:50 PM.

Please note that students can bring lunch and eat in the cafeteria on October 19th but there will be no food service available. All students will be allowed to eat lunch off campus that day.

If you have questions about the process please reach out to your child's grade level administrator or school counselor. If you choose to opt your child out of taking the PSAT, please contact Mr. Piazza at ext. 411.

Sincerely,

Brian Piazza
Assistant Principal
Carmel High School

Reporting Student Absences

Parents/guardians will no longer call to report student absences.  Every parent/guardian will receive an attendance call when their child has been marked absent.  The parent/guardian will then be asked to send a written documentation of the reason for the absence with their child when they return to school. 

  • Please send all attendance notes to the Main Office by the end of 1st period the day the student returns to school. 
  • All early dismissal notes need to be submitted to the Main Office by the end of 1st period on the day of the early dismissal.
  • Late arrival notes should also be brought to the Main Office as soon as the student enters the building.

If you have any questions about attendance, and our updated procedures, please contact Mrs. Miller in the Main Office at rmiller@carmelschools.org
