Deer Park Jr/Sr High School Wildcat Weekly February 21st, 2021

Jr./Sr. High School

Weekly Updates

Good afternoon,

We are looking forward to finally having another full week of classes!  While the snow days are certainly nice every once and awhile, we also know that we miss connecting and teaching our students on those days.

Please continue to help check your child's grades, especially as we near the end of the 3rd quarter (officially ending on March 12th).  With just two and a half weeks of school days left, the time will pass quickly.

As always, please be sure to reach out with any questions or concerns. 


Shane Hartley
Principal, Deer Park Jr/Sr High School 

What's New?

Conference sign-ups are now open by visiting

Please note that 7th-10th grade conferences are "team" conferences.  Also please remember that our conferences have been bumped to March 11th, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


This coming Tuesday, February 23rd is our annual ACT testing day for high school juniors.  9th, 10th, and 12th graders will have a late start day, and doors will open for them at 11:50 a.m.  All 7th, 8th, and 11th graders will report to school at normal time this Tuesday. 


Students who are not on quarantine will still need to be called in as absent.  Please help us keep track of attendance and any possible contact tracing with a quick call to our attendance line (513-891-0010).


Third quarter ends on March 12th.  However, the last day to turn in assignments for the 3rd quarter will be WEDNESDAY, MARTH 10TH AT MIDNIGHT.  Whatever your grade is at that time will be your 3rd quarter grade on your report card.  Additionally, 2nd semester grades will be calculated the same way they were calculated in the 1st semester, and final grades in year-long courses will be an average of 1st semester and 2nd semester grades.


Unfortunately our mobile dentist will again need to be rescheduled due to our recent snow day.  Please be on the lookout for updates soon! 


Conferences that have been rescheduled for March 11th will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.   Look for conference sign-ups in next week's Weekly Memo!

In Case You Missed It


Our juniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, February 23rd.  To help accommodate for the number of teacher proctors needed this year, we are going to have our 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students have a late start that day.  All 7th and 8th graders will come to school as normal that day.  A couple other details:

  • 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students will be let into the building at 11:55 a.m.
  • Students with 5A lunch will report to lunch, students with 5B lunch will report to class and then to lunch at 12:22 p.m. (your child should know which lunch he/she/they have)
  • 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students will follow their daily schedule as a virtual learning day that day.  These students should be using Schoology to log in and find their teachers' assignments for that morning.  Here is a link to our daily bell schedule.
