ATTENTION PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS: WE NEED YOU!!
Please use Schoologyand the Parent Portalto monitor your child's progress in school. At Hutch Tech, it is safe to assume that your child receives homework and a variety of writing and research based labs and project assignments in every class on a regular basis. Be sure to assist them with attendance and time management so that they do not fall behind in school.
Accessing Schoology will give you a clear idea of the assignments, due dates, and materials for each class. Every teacher has a Schoology page.
Accessing the Parent Portal will inform you of your child's ATTENDANCE, GRADES, and any warnings of missing assignments. You can set the portal to notify you on your cell phone if your child has been marked absent or when assignments are scored and grades entered.

Parents: The district administered the Youth Risk Behavior Survey in November. The results of the YRBS will be shared with teachers and students at the SBMT, and will be considered as we set goals for the 2022-23 school year. Thank you to all students who completed the survey.
The survey is completely anonymous and is intended to provide a school with information about the health and well-being of our students as related to behaviors that can put a person at risk. Parents were provided an opportunity to review the survey and choose to opt out if they did not want their child to participate.
