The pivot to online learning will begin Friday, October 9 and students will return to school Monday, October 26. Due to Fall Break being next week, students will only miss 6.5 face-to-face instructional days, but will have a total of 7.5 days of remote learning.
During this time period classes will resume on the Purple/White schedule as normal. Please see the attached schedule. Make-up Monday will be moved from October 19 to October 26 when students return.
Instruction: Teachers will be reaching out to students with more information on how this works for their specific class. Please take advantage of this time each period to connect with teachers and classmates. This online schedule is NOT intended to be two weeks off of school. It is two weeks of online instruction that will allow our school/community to reset and allow all those students that are impacted by the virus to recover. Please stay engaged with your classes. You can expect that there will be assignments and learning expectations. If your student is struggling please have them reach out to their teachers.
Grades: Online learning will NOT have an automatic passing grade. Students and teachers will need to work together to achieve proficiency, progress, and earn passing grades. Please be aware the end of quarter is October 28. Have a strong pursuit of academic excellence and finish this quarter strong.
Extra-curricular Activities: All extra-curricular activities including performing arts, in-season athletics, and other scheduled competitions will continue. Each participant will be provided 4 tickets for family members at home events. Teams or groups that have a high number of positive COVID cases, and have been notified, will remain on quarantine until the designated date of return.
Quarantines: Students currently out on quarantine or required to be in isolation will need to complete their quarantine/isolation as directed in the communication that was sent home.

We want to reassure you that our school staff and teachers have been working hard to provide a safe environment for our students, however, while we continue to do everything we can at our school, we need your help and support to ensure our students and staff can remain healthy and stay safe.
Please make sure your family is adhering to the health order to avoid large group gatherings and wearing a mask in public, especially when social distancing is not possible. The safety and education of our students are our top priority and we are doing everything we can in facilitating both as we balance health department guidelines with continued student learning.
During this two-week period, we would strongly encourage any students who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID or who have had exposure to a positive person to get tested.
Thank you for your support and patience during this unique year. Parents/Guardians, please encourage your students to follow the typical daily schedule. It is so important for our students to maintain good habits of getting up and following established school routines.
