A Message from Principal Norris-Buck

Dear Royal Families,


We have arrived at the end of first semester! We thank you for the support you provide your students and our staff during this time. We know this has been a learning semester for all of us. I am astounded when I think about all I personally have learned over the last calendar year and how different life is. As we find ourselves in the holiday season, I hope you have time to rest, relax and enjoy the time with your family. Here's to a happy and healthy 2021!


Third Quarter Schedules: Our counseling team has been working hard to honor the learning format requests for the third quarter. Infinite Campus is now showing 3rd quarter schedules. If your child’s schedule has changed, it is due to the number of students who either went fully remote for virtual learning or wanted to return to school in -person. These changes do not begin until the 3rd quarter, January 5th. This week, our teachers helped students know how to find their new schedule and the links for the Google Meets. You may have a message in your IC messages from them about this change. On January 4th, our staff will reach out again via email to remind your students of the links, their new schedule, and any Google Classroom codes. After January 5th, we will also send out our Cohort Line up map again to help everyone remember where to go for in-person learning on January 12th. Should your child still not know where to go or have general questions, beginning at 10:00 on Tuesday, 1/5, they can access their grade level counselor or admin staff using one of the links below:

Twas the Night Before Christmas Escape Room

If you are looking for a fun brain teaser game to do this holiday season, check out this link. It's a fun twist on the old story "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" using logic and math to advance through the rooms. It was made using one of the technology platforms we use with the students. We hope you try it and enjoy the adventure that awaits!
