Homework is assigned in different ways. Some teachers will give an assignment every night (usu ally giving students some class time to begin their assignment), while other teachers may tend to assign more project type homework in which students need to do some work each night to finish by the due date. Some teachers assign both types of homework. The amount of homework increases with each grade, i.e. 8 th grade students will naturally have more homework than 5 th grade students. Students who are absent need to make up their assignments. Upon returning to school after an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to check with the teacher to see what work he/she needs to make up.
Smaller and first time infractions of school rules (i.e. talking while the teacher is teaching, goofing off in class) will often be handled by the teacher. More serious and repeated offences will result in a discipline referral to school administration, either to the campus supervisors, school dean, or principal. Consequences include warnings, after school and lunch detentions, campus clean-up, periods of ICE, suspension from school, or expulsion from the school district.
For purposes of evaluating student progress, the school year is divided into four quarter s for 6-8 th grade and three trimesters for 5 th grade. Students will receive a report card at the end of each quarter or trimester. Students will also receive written communication from the school if the student is failing or near failing, or not meeting standards. For any additional information regarding student progress, parents should leave a message for a specific teacher to phone or email them. 6-8 th grade students and families have access to Edline, which has all student grades available online.
The nurse or health technician is available to administer minor first aid or to phone for medical assistance. Please contact the school nurse or health tech. to arrange for any medication to be administered. Students are not allowed to give themselves medication. Also, please make sure that your home and emergency numbers, and your parent/guardian information in the office are up to date.
Textbooks and library books are school property and are paid for by the taxpayers. Books should be cared for in a way that will keep them useful for several years. Students should make sure they write their names in their textbooks so that no one else will take them and so that they will be returned if lost. Students who move from Eagle Peak should make sure they turn in all school books and property before leaving to avoid fines following them to the next school of attendance.
A physical examination form can be picked up in the school office, and is part of a sports packet that contains information about Eagle Peak’s athletics program.
Eagle Peak Middle School began its first year of operation in the fall of 1997. It is one of two middle schools in the Ukiah Unified School District and is located in a northern rural section of the Ukiah Valley in the community of Redwood Valley. The design of the campus is characterized by two-story classrooms, a gymnasium, an after school program building, and a cafeteria/performing arts building, all encircling the administration/library complex. In the 2010-2011 school year, Eagle Peak was proud to welcome 5 th graders to its campus due to the closure of Redwood Valley Middle School. The student population for grades five through eight is approximately 425 students. Approximately forty staff work at Eagle Peak. Eagle Peak’s school mascot is the Eagle and the school colors are burgundy and silver.
We have decided upon the following plan in an effort to keep our community safe and healthy: We will follow our distance learning schedule during the week beginning Monday, January 4 2021 (four school days), and then return to in-person classes on Monday, Jan 11.
The Peak School strongly recommends that all students get tested three days before they return to in-person classes on Jan 11. If any students choose not to get tested, they should let the school know when they return that they have limited their exposure since Jan. 4 and have no symptoms.
