Dear Black River Parents and Students,
During the last two years, many community service opportunities have either been canceled or compromised due to the international pandemic we are experiencing. As students were able to, we applaud the help they have been able to offer their communities and families during this time.
However, in fairness to students not having many traditional options available, we are going to "grant" one year's worth of community service to current students in the grades listed below. The hours will vary depending on grade level. The following chart may serve as an example, and it will take a little while to be updated in Infinite Campus, but it is in the works!
Grades 1-2 4 hours granted (out of 10)
Grade 4 8 hours granted (out of 15)
Grades 6-7 7 hours granted (out of 20)
Grades 9-11 15 hours granted (out of 60)
Additionally, if a student does not meet the community service total requirement in grades 3, 5, 8 or 12, it will not prohibit them from advancing a grade level or graduating.
