Students in grades 6-12 will be given exemption notices by their teachers this week. High school students who receive notices will not be required to return after May 13; middle school students who receive notices will not be required to return after May 16. These are the criteria: • Students in grades 6-7 must have a 90 or above for the year in all courses to be exempt. • Students in grades 8-11 must have a 90 or above for the year in a yearlong course or a 90 or above for the semester in a semester-long course. • ALL applicable grades must be above 90 for 6-11th grade students to exempt. • Students in grade 12 must be passing all coursework (70 or higher) to finish school on May 13. They will be responsible for attending activities on Thursday afternoon, May 19 and Friday morning, May 20, per information they have been given.

The City of Buena Vista is looking to hire approximately 10 students to assist with collecting surveys from the community for a Community Development Block Grant application. These students will go door to door asking residents to complete a one-page survey. Upon completion, the city will provide them with $100 each. They will go to approximately 40 doors each. This work will be done this weekend (Friday-Monday, May 5/5-9). They will be provided with a list of addresses, the surveys, and a quick tutorial. We recognize the quick turnaround, but we do not want to miss the opportunity to bring the services that these grant funds can provide to our community. Those interested should sign up with Mrs. Jernigan by the end of the school day tomorrow (5/5) or call City Hall at 649-7888 or Mayor Kevin Brown at 314-9399.
