Welcome to Mrs. Thompson'sU.S. History Class
High School information (as of 3/31)
From Ms. Shultz-
Before you being your course request for high schools, you must verify your address with Montford’s Registrar, Ms. Hager. firstname.lastname@example.org Please submit your information electronically to Ms. Hager as much as possible, using a scanner or taking pictures of your documents. You can also place a copy in regular mail, or stop by the school to drop off your information. We are trying to limit contact as much as possible during this time, so please try electronically submitting or placing copies of your documents in the mail. Visit this website for information regarding which documents you need to submit. https://www.leonschools.net/Page/30896
Your student will not get their courses without verifying your address!
Here is the information I received from the feeder High Schools:
Lincoln HS – information is attached
Chiles HS – “At Chiles we are working on a plan. If you will just ask our incoming parents to please go to our website and join listserv we will share information there regarding 8th grade Chiles registration and course request forms. Thank you!”
Leon HS- “We are holding off on course selection for the next couple of weeks; we will then post instructions to our website. These instructions will be in the form of a power point and will be available on the Guidance Department page. They can look for these instructions and begin selecting courses on April 15th. They can access the course selection form and course descriptions now if they would like to start planning”
If you have questions regarding COURSES and ELECTIVES, please contact your feeder high school.
If you have questions regarding verifying your address, please contact Lori Hager email@example.com
