Message from Mr. Pope
We have 108 students changing to in-person learning beginning this Monday. As a result, teacher reassignments for some students in kindergarten and first grade will occur. Students in third and fifth grades will stay with their current teachers, and these grades will shift to the concurrent classroom model. Students in second and fourth grades will experience no changes.
In order to maintain reasonable class sizes in our specials program, we must return to our traditional master schedule. Below is each grade level's new schedule through the lens of digital learners. New schedules begin Monday. Remember that Monday is a self-paced learning day for digital students in grades 2 through 5.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition. Please contact me at 678-482-1000 if you have any questions or concerns.
