Pride Time is a half hour set aside for you to master academic concepts. There are two parts to Pride Time: intervention and enrichment. At the end of 1st period, you should check your Edficiency to find out where you should go. You may request to see a teacher or a teacher may request to see you.  If your teacher requests you, their request takes priority over yours.  

If you do not request to see a teacher or a teacher does not request to see you, you will randomly be assigned to a classroom.  Once you've been assigned to a classroom, you will be expected to stay there for the entire half hour.

  • When you are absent from school, you are responsible to arrange with your teachers time to make up the work you missed. 
  • If you are going on vacation, let the school know in writing three days before you leave.
