Learning Models

A few weeks ago, a form was sent to all families to identify which learning model (in person which is remote right now or Thompson Connect Online) each student would be selecting for the second semester that begins Tuesday, January 5, 2021. If your child is not changing learning model, there is nothing further to do.

For those who completed the form or contacted our office to change the learning model, please note the following below.

Our counseling staff will reach out to you as to the next steps for class schedules and information about either joining us for in-person learning (which is currently remote) or for fully online through Thompson Connect Online (TCO). At this time, we do not know whether we will be serving students who select the in-person learning model remotely or in-person when the second semester begins. Details regarding the re-entry of high school students for in-person learning will come out from the District by December 18, 2020.

If you are planning to have your child change learning models and you have not yet contacted us, please do so by December 11 so that we can ensure a smooth transition.
