January 29, 2021

Good afternoon-

Today brought us to the halfway point in the school year. We are excited to start Term 3 on Monday. Please read this thoroughly for important information about the next semester. We have some significant changes coming.

Change to Report Card date:
Due to the transition between terms we will need a few extra days to get report cards ready. All grades will be shared in iStudent/iParent on Tuesday, February 9 after 3pm.

Changes to Learning Format and Time:
Starting Monday, February 1 all teachers will be teaching their classes synchronously. All students are expected to be present "in class" regardless of their cohort day. Students at home must be logged into class, following along with instruction or any other teacher direction. 

We are also increasing synchronous learning time on Wednesday. 

The new schedule begins on Wednesday, February 3. 

C Period 8:35-9:20

E Period 9:25-10:10

10 Minute Break

F Period 10:20-11:05

D Period 11:10-11:55

Please be mindful of this and plan accordingly. It has always been the expectation that students are engaged in school work from 8:35am-2:35/55pm. Please remember that failure to attend class, whether in person or remotely, could result in a loss of credit for the class. 

Course Recommendations for 2021-2022

If you have some time this weekend please take a moment to complete the attached form:
I would love to surprise our educators with some mid-year pick-me-up messages from parents and students.

Finally, COVID fatigue is real for all of us. Most students are doing great with the safety expectations. Please have a conversation with your child about the importance of following the rules. Whether you believe in them or not, they are requirements for attendance. I appreciate your support with this. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
