Tiger Tracks

Parent Newsletter - Issue #307 - February 22, 2021

Tiger families, we hope you are safe and well after last week's winter weather!


We will resume synchronous instruction on Wednesday, February 24 through Friday, February 26. This means if your student is an online learner, they will follow the regular online bell schedule.


If you student is normally a face-to-face learner, they will follow the face-to-face bell schedule and login from home. There is a slight modification to the face-to-face bell schedule. The first hour of each class period will be synchronous instruction and the last 30 minutes will be asynchronous instruction. During the last 30 minutes of asynchronous time each class period, students may participate in tutorials, one-on-one instruction, or complete asynchronous assignments to support curriculum covered during class.


For example, during 1st period, a face-to-face student will login to a Teams meeting from 7:30-8:30 AM and participate in online learning synchronously. Then from 8:30-9:00 AM, they will not need to be logged in to a Teams meeting, but they will complete the assigned asynchronous task from their teacher.


See the bell schedules below.

Student Parking Lot and Pick-up/Drop-off

Parents/guardians,

It is imperative that we follow the traffic patterns and utilize the front circle drive for all student drop-off and pick-up.

Please do not drop off or pick up your students in the parking lot. This creates an unsafe environment.

Thank you for your committment to our Tigers' safety!
