Dear Parent/Guardian,

As we have navigated through this first semester, we have realized how valuable Remote Learning Days have been for our teachers and remote learning students. This additional time to devote to Remote Learners has increased our ability to provide more effective instruction to those students. In order to meet the needs of our remote learners and our teaching staff we will be changing our schedule for the third quarter to allow for more instructional time for our remote only learners. 

The following changes will be made during the second semester (January-March):

Friday January 8th:             Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday January 15th:           Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday January 22nd:           Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday January 29th:           Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday February 5th:           Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday February 12th:         Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday February 19th:         Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday February 26th:         Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday March 5th:                Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

Friday March 12th:             Remote Learning Day (No In-Person Instruction)

All students will be remote learning on these days. In-person learners will be given assignments on the previous day to complete on these days.

Making changes to our schedule is not something that we take lightly. We understand the difficulty it places on parents/guardians when it comes to employment, child care, etc. Our Back to School Committee will be evaluating these changes and its educational benefit during this semester. We will then determine if any further changes need to be made to the schedule for the fourth quarter. We appreciate your understanding of our situation as we strive to provide the best education possible to all of our students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school offices.
