COVID Calendar Considerations

DAILY GRADES:  Many students and parents may be wondering if Luther High School will continue to use letter grades for the current semester or move to a pass/fail grading system.

The faculty has evaluated how online learning is affecting all of our students. We realize the transition is different for each student.   Based on the faculty’s assessment of academic progress at the recent marking period, the majority of students have either maintained or improved their grades during this safer at home period.   For those who have found this to be even more of a challenge, instructors are making additional efforts to provide academic assistance.  We will continue to monitor how this transition is going for each of our students. Students and parents can help us to that end by informing the specific instructor of questions, comments and concerns.  Luther High School will continue to use letter grades.   Your continued understanding, assistance and prayers are needed and appreciated.
