Assuring learning excellence and readiness for a changing world.
New Rotation Begins on Monday
Here you will find the new calendar showing A days, B days, D days, and K-12 Distance Learning Days.
Distance Learning Only students will follow the schedule below on Wednesdays. It is an expectation that students will connect virtually with their teachers in their assigned hour.
1st Hour - 12:00
2nd Hour - 12:30
3rd Hour - 1:00
4th Hour - 1:30
5th Hour - 2:00
6th Hour - 2:30
7th Hour - 3:00
It is mid-quarter time, and I would encourage you to check grades in Infinite Campus. Teachers have their grade books up to date and the grades you see will give you a good indication as to how your student is doing.
The grading period ends on November 12th.
