Due to the current weather forecast for inclement weather, we will not administer the SAT on Wednesday, March 21st. Juniors will take the SAT on Tuesday April 24th (as decided by Connecticut and CollegeBoard). It is important that all students are present to take the assessment on that day. We will communicate the schedule for that day as we get closer.
Due to this change, we will run a normal schedule on Wednesday, March 21st. If an Early Dismissal is called, we will run the normal Wednesday Early Release schedule (posted on our website).
Due to the schedule change, seniors will be expected to attend school tomorrow. However, if they already have a college visit scheduled and provide the proper documentation, the absence will be marked as excused. Students would still be expected to make up any missed work due to the absence.
If school is cancelled, we would resume our normal Thursday schedule on Thursday March 22nd (even if a Delay were called).
Due to testing this month and recent winter weather we will be editing the daily schedule in order to maintain equitable class times. This is contingent on future weather and as always if a change is needed we will let you know. Only the changes to the schedule are listed below. If a date is not listed, the normal schedule for that day would be run.
Week of March 12-16:
Friday March 16th (Monday schedule)

Monday March 19th (Friday Schedule)
Wednesday March 21st (SAT Schedule)

As a reminder we will have our March PTO meeting at Swift Middle School tomorrow evening at 7:00 in the school library. Please come out to hear more about the budget for the upcoming school year.
An email was sent this evening with an important letter regarding the plans for the international student-led “walkouts” occurring on March 14th. The letter is also attached in this post below and being sent out through Twitter. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Lastly, please come out to support our students in the musical performance of Cinderella. There will be performances on the evenings of Friday March 16th, Saturday March 17th, and the afternoon of Sunday March 18th.
Due to school being canceled today, the timeframe for students to have course requests completed will be extended. Students will have until the end of the day on Wednesday, March 7 to submit all of their course requests for the 18-19 school year. If you have not started or completed your course requests, please log into the student portal, not the parent portal, in PowerSchool and submit course requests. Please contact your school counselor or administrator if you have any questions or discover any issues.
In an effort to ensure that class meeting times are as balanced as possible before the holiday break we are making the following changes below. This will allow students tomorrow to be prepared for the classes they would have had today.
Enjoy the snow!

As a reminder, for this school year when we have a weather related two-hour delay on a Monday, we will rotate between a Tuesday and a Wednesday delay schedule throughout the school year. We will send this out via email to staff and Twitter to students/parents once the decision has been made.
Please note that this means there is no Flex on the Tuesday delay schedule or SSP on the Wednesday delay schedule. We are rotating the days so that it will balance out in the end, but if there is an issue that causes certain class periods to not meet more frequently due to multiple cancellations in a week, we will make adjustments accordingly and notify students and staff.
I hope everyone was able to stay safe throughout the storm last night and as always please let me know if you have any questions.
