Important Updates

Dear Students, Families and Chambers community,

Thank you to the students and parents who worked hard to be in school daily and on time. While that is a great achievement, our attendance goal is 95% for the entire year.   This means missing school at any time has a negative impact on learning, achievement and grades. When your child must be absent, please be sure to let us know the reason and provide a written note from your doctor if it is related to an illness.

While we have not had much winter weather yet, we are sure to have some snow-related events this month. Please make sure that your contact information is up to date in our system. We will be using this information to send messages to all families and employees regarding our status of closure due to dangerous weather conditions. If your phone number or email address has changed, please share that information with
the main office as soon as possible so we can keep you informed.  Parents please further note that educational and social learning is also related to student attendance. This also includes students that are picked up early from school as well.

As I quote one of my many heroes; “If there is no struggle, there is no progress,” ~Frederick Douglass

make sure you stress to your child the importance of excelling in this exam and all exams. The educational spotlight is on our children. We are losing schools but gaining more prisons. We have a right and responsibility to want and expect greatness. Please note that our children will not focus on what we tell, but rather what they see in us. We have to model what we want to see if our children are to shine (passing score is
