Paly semester grades not available until January 17
Original post made by Parent on Dec 29, 2012
I wonder if Gunn is doing the same? Not that Gunn and Paly follow the same rules. . .
We received this:
Dear Paly students and parents,
We are at the end of first semester and heading into Winter Break. All students and staff are looking forward to a work free break so ...
We want to inform you that the grades for first semester will be posted sometime Thursday, January 17 or Friday, January 18. We know that some people are anxious about their grades but please allow the teachers to have a work free break and do not email them regarding your grades.
Thank you and have a wonderful vacation!

I am grateful to the administrators at Paly for taking this stance. I want my teen to do well in school but I hope she has a robust life outside of school too, which includes family, the community, her mental and physical health. Life isn't all about grades.

Parent - the teachers deserve a stress free break and so does the staff that sends inputs info, prints the report cards, etc. Let your student enjoy their work-free break.

This notice was sent after the vote about the one percent bonus for the teachers' outstanding effort...hmmm.
