Mariner Families and Community,
It’s been encouraging to see more and more students receive in-person services at Mariner. Over mid-winter break we had 35 seniors come to Mariner to complete work and earn credit for their 1st semester classes. These seniors worked diligently and many of them were able to complete credit to get back on track for graduation. We will continue to advocate for students and families for the option to return to the building for in-person instruction. Until then, please continue to support your students in the remote learning environment. Students need every credit to stay on track for graduation! Speaking of graduation, I’ve received a number of inquiries about the plans for the Class of 2021. We are currently planning graduation for Friday, June 11th. We are working closely with district administration to make every effort to celebrate our seniors with an in-person ceremony. It may look a bit different from normal years, but we understand the importance of graduation to seniors and families.
We had school picture day last month, and student ASB cards are here! Some students have already picked them up from school, and the rest of them will be sent home this week. To view and order pictures, go to lifenlight.gotphoto.com and enter the access code given to students on picture day (or scan the QR code given to students on picture day). If you do not have the code, you can call 425.737.3395 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the access code you need. If your student did not make it to picture day, then we’d like them to attend picture re-takes on Wednesday, March 3rd. Re-takes are ONLY for students who missed the first day – not for students who do not like their pictures. All students will receive an ASB card and we need the photos for our yearbook! Students will enter the building from the bus loop doors and have photos taken in the concourse by the library. We would prefer that each grade level come at the times below, but if students cannot make it, they can come any time between 9am-1pm.
9th grade: 9:00-10:00am
10th grade: 10:00-11:00am
11th grade: 11:00-12:00pm
12th grade: 12:00-1:00pm
Please don’t hesitate to contact the school or a teacher directly if you have any needs or concerns. The building is open Monday-Friday from 7:30am-3:00pm, so feel free to stop by for any reason. We are here to support our students and families in any way.
