  • Clark Cafeteria Procedures Beginning 9/9

    En Espanol

    To help maintain everyone's health and safety, we will have new cafeteria procedures for students returning for Face-To-Face instruction.  


    • Breakfast will be available for students beginning at 8:00 am.  We will have 4 separate lunch sessions and will be cleaning the cafeteria between each session.  
    • Students will not be allowed to choose their cafeteria seats (per TEA guidelines for contact-tracing).  Staff members will be present and help guide students to their designated seats.
    • No microwaves will be available for use
    • Students need to check with their 4th period Google Classroom and teacher to find out their specific lunch time.  A video will be posted in their 4th period Google Classroom outlining the specific procedures for their class. 
    • All students will report directly to their 4th period class (even if they have A lunch).  Teachers will lead their classes to the cafeteria at the designated times.


    We understand that these procedures are different from previous years, but we are trying to maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone. Thank you for helping us protect our Clark family!

  • Attendance Policy Update

    Hello Clark Community,

        Thank you for all you have done to make the start of school as smooth as possible given these unusual times. I am writing to inform you of an update to attendance practices that the district sent to us on Friday, August 21, 2020. What remains the same is that students have many ways to demonstrate their attendance: 

    • virtual, live participation during synchronous times; 
    • engagement in the content-specific material;
    • submission of assignments, etc.


        Also remaining the same is the student’s ability to participate until 11:59 p.m. the day of instructions (although late night work is not recommended because teachers are not available to help during this time). Another expectation is that students engage in every class, every day. Unlike elementary and middle school, high school students must show attendance in every period, every day and must do so at a rate of 90% to earn credit for the class.


    What has changed:

    • Teachers will take attendance every period, every day.  Attendance will be taken within the first 20 minutes of class for synchronous learning.
    • Teachers will reconcile attendance the following day.
    • Teachers are not required to reconcile attendance throughout the school day.


    What does this mean?

        If  students are virtually present during the regular class period verified through some online presence such as virtually meeting with their class or logging in through their webdesk and engaging in the work for that class period, they will be marked present.

        If a student is not present during the class time as indicated above, the student will not be marked present; however, the student still has the opportunity to be recorded as present by engaging in the classwork prior to 11:59 p.m. that day.

        If a student is not present during the class time, does not submit work, or show proof of engagement of the course material that day prior to 11:59 p.m., the student will be recorded as absent. The record of absence will show on the parent portal the following day when teachers reconcile attendance.


    Thank you for your continued support,

    Pam Clark
