Good Afternoon Dust Devils,

Kudos to our teachers and students who each day are showing improvement at learning online. As we move forward, we want to continue to refine our work and your feedback is a crucial component. Please share with us your thoughts on how we can improve the quality of the education we are providing. Click here to send me your feedback.

This week I spent time in each of our advisory classes, and I could not be more pleased with what I experienced. Although not everyone is fully awake at 9:00 am, students are excited to see their friends while also being attentive and engaged in learning. Our average District attendance rate was approximately 90%. At our current rate of progression, I can't wait to see what we will accomplish by June.

Many have asked about picking items that students left in their Physical Education lockers. We are developing a plan to remove and return those items to their owners. We will be sharing more details in the near future.

We are still in the process of activating Gmail accounts for those who have returned the Responsible Use Form. We appreciate your patience.

Lastly, we want to remind everyone to give yourself some grace. We have heard that some students might feel overwhelmed with the workload. Classwork is posted on Mondays for the week, but remember, not all assignments are mandatory. Students should be selecting one or two primary assignments in each of the core content areas. Should your child want to explore more of the posted assignments, they are welcome to continue to extend their learning by completing additional posted options.

Please stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
