Science Olympiad Event (Feb 24th 2016)
Good Evening Parents of CSP Olympiad students,

Students will report to the University of Maryland College Park Saturday the 24th BEFORE 7:00. The homeroom for Middle School Olympiad is PLS1172 while high school students will report to PLS1176. In their homerooms, they will get their bracelets and then be released to impound their projects (if needed) or go to their competitions. Lunch will be provided to students around 12:10 in the homerooms. Lunch is cheese pizza with soda. Please make sure that your students know where they need to report to and at what time per the schedule given to them by their coach. Also, please be sure to pay attention to the information about parking as CP is very strict and we could hate to have you get ticket or worse. One last thing to be mindful of is the fact that each student is responsible for his or her own event materials. Coach’s will not be taking materials to the event for students. See everyone soon.

Immunizations
Hello Parents/Guardians,
Some of you may have already received an email from me regarding your child's immunizations.
Children at the age of 11 are eligible to receive the MCV4 and tdap immunizations. To avoid the rush over the summer, please make sure your child has both of these and send me the updated records.
Both of these immunizations are required to enter the 7th grade.

Repeat-Free School

If a student receives an E in a required high school course, the class will have to be repeated in an alternate program such as summer school, evening school or twilight school. These programs are available for students to make up credits in courses that they were not successful in the first time; classes at CSP are for students taking them for original credit. If a student does not make up the failed class in one of these alternative programs, there is a chance that we will not be able to schedule the student for the classes required for graduation, and the student will have to take classes at CSP for more than four years.
