Please click on and read the important letter below from Ms. Hine.  

While the letter outlines what remote learning would look like for each grade in the event of a complete school shutdown, our intention as a district is to remain open as long as possible.

We hope you have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday.

Please be aware that beginning Wednesday, November 18th, an additional “in-person” day of instruction will begin for the 7th and 8th grade students. Students assigned to Cohort 2, (renamed from here on out as the “Black Team”) will attend on Wednesday, November 18, and students assigned to Cohort 1, (Red Team) will begin to attend after the Thanksgiving break on Wednesday, December 2. This rotating day will continue until at least the end of the semester and as stated above is in addition to their already scheduled “in-person” days as per their assigned cohort.

Students that are currently attending with both cohorts due to their Individualized Education Plan will now attend “in-person” on

*10/16 UPDATE

Middle School Parents,

This is a reminder about the Phase 2 changes to the re-opening plan that will be occurring the week of 10/19: 

  • Grade 5 & 6 Remote learners will start with their new “live” instructors on Monday, October 19, 2020 according to their scheduled times sent home by letter last week.
  • Students in grades 5 & 6 will now be attending school 5 days a week starting October 19th.
  • All students in 7th and 8th grade will now have a remote instructional day every Wednesday starting October 21st.  Students will follow their period by period schedule. Attendance will be taken in the Homeroom and first period class for the day. Students need to submit the attendance item posted on the Google classroom page.

    Attention 7th & 8th Parents and Students: For the Wednesday remote instruction day, students will log into their respective google classroom each period to access either the live google meet with the teacher via a posted link, or the pre-recorded video for that day.

A reminder that remote learners will have the option to return to physically return to school at the start of the second semester.

We hope this continued phasing in of students, including Wednesday as a fifth instructional day for all,  meets with more success for teachers, parents and students.

Back to School Night:

Thursday, September 17, 2020 – Back to School Night for Grades 5 and 6.

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 – Back to School Night for Grades 7 and 8.

Back to School night this year will be done remotely via visits to teacher Google Classrooms. Teachers will post a video to introduce themselves and share their course curriculum and expectations for the school year. There will be no in person attendance on these nights.

Additionally, parents are reminded that we cannot accept items dropped off from home once the school day has begun, including lunches, books, homework, or instruments. 


Thank you for your cooperation.
