Remote learners tool:
Welcome back! Below you will find important information regarding guidelines and policies in place at the start of this school year. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, and remember we are all in this together!
Remote learning will occur Monday through Friday. Students should be available for video conferencing with teachers from 1:45pm to 3:45pm each day.
Students will be tasked with independent and teacher-directed activities emphasizing the significant learning standards for each subject. These tasks will vary from hands-on to virtual and can be completed by the students on their own time schedule as long as deadlines are met. Such independent study will account for a maximum of 3 hours of learning for the fulfillment of the required approximate 5 hour school day.
Student grades will be earned in the traditional fashion of a combination of daily participation, assignment submission, examinations, and projects.
A combination of presence during the “live” afternoon sessions and timely completed work will be used to establish attendance. Any student who does not participate in remote learning will be marked as absent and can be referred to the truancy program.
In Person Instruction
In-person instruction will occur Monday through Friday from 8:05 am to 1:09.
MTWTHF Bell Schedule

Instruction, grading, and attendance will closely mirror past practices with emphasis upon integration of technological tools for instruction and work submission and the addition of many health and safety protocols.
