Transition to Hybrid Learning (starting 1/11/21)

Good Evening 6-12 Parents and Students,

Parents - you should have received an email from the 6-12 Administrative Team reminding families of the current modality of remote learning / or / in-person learning.  We strongly encourage you to have your students remain in this learning modality until the end of the semester (January 26th).  If a student is in person, it is important to get back in the building to establish their routines and schedule, if families feel they are safe to return.    

We will start our Hybrid Schedule for grades 6-12 on January 11th - January 15th and January 18th - January 22nd.  The week of January 18th - January 22nd has been adjusted and revised to maximize instructional time due to the extended Holiday Weekend.   Below is a reminder of the schedule for all students, separated by alphabetical order.  Students are permitted to carry book bags and can go to their locker when needed.
