    Attendance and Grading

     

    • Log in to your Infinite Campus Portal by 10am Monday-Friday to mark yourself present

     

    • You will receive a reminder email everyday - follow the link to the portal

    Your 3rd quarter grade is your current grade and your semester grade cannot fall below that. 


    If you are unhappy with your quarter grade we encourage you to take any reassessment opportunities you can and to complete missing assignments

     

     

    Get Organized!


    Review expectations for students in a Distance Learning environment.

      

    Create a to -do list and check off items you’ve completed


    Also take some time and organize your room so that you can be productive (move distractions out of sight etc)

    Find What Works For You!

    • If you always study in groups, try a virtual study session with your group (Google Hangouts can help with this).

     

    • If you thrive on tight timelines, but now have a more open schedule, think about how working with others or setting up a schedule can recreate that for you. When that gets hard, see if you can do just fifteen minutes at a time.

    Greetings from Elgin High School Guidance Department!

    As you know, we strive to provide your child with the very best information and resources so that your family can make the best decisions possible in high school, including which college to attend.

    We are pleased to announce a partnership with SimpliCollege, a 9th-12th grade college preparation platform that has just as much for families as it does for students!  SimpliCollege breaks down the college process into lessons based on the topics that matter most to you: searching for colleges, applying to schools, and getting the most financial aid possible.  It also includes tools and resources to make college as painless as possible.  

    All you need to do to get access to SimpliCollege is go to https://www.simplicollege.com/elgin   and create an account.  Your child should create one as well since the student portal, SimpliStudent, is set up based on your child’s grade. 

    We think you’ll enjoy all that SimpliCollege has to offer and hope you find it helpful as your family navigates the road to college!

    If you have any questions ,contact your counselor. 

    Best,

    The Counseling Team
