Principal's Update 12/16/2020 - NM Grades instead of F grades

Dear Parents of Mayfair Middle/High School Students:

We will be issuing “NM” instead of “F” grades on the 1st semester (Fall 2020) report card.

Here are some of the reasons we have made this change and what a "NM" means as a grade.

  • “NM” Takes into consideration the struggles the students are facing during distance learning.
  • “NM” is used to indicate no credit earned. (This is also done during Summer school).
  • “NM”  does not negatively affect GPA.
  • For High School students, the “NM” means a student still needs to make up the class through credit recovery classes or Summer School (“NM” is not the same as everyone passing). 
  • For High School students, the “NM” will affect participation in graduation
  • For Middle School and High School, the “NM” will affect participation in Sports and extracurricular activities.
  • For Middle School and High School students, the “NM” will affect their entry into advanced classes and honors classes.
  • For Middle School students, the “NM” will affect participation in our promotion ceremony. 
  • When calculating GPAs for honor roll a “NM” will have the same value as an F

If you have any questions or concerns about the "NM" please contact our office at 562-925-9981 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. A counselor will answer your questions.

We have our School Site Council (SSC) meeting held on Thursday, December 17th, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We will be discussing our School Safety Plan and other topics. We invite all to join us at this Google Meet Link: https://meet.google.com/hbk-rdbx-rsn
