Moving ahead with Remote Learning

You have most likely heard the news that Governor Dunleavy has closed school for remainder of the school year. We will continue remote learning up until May 19th.

Dr. Gaborik sent out information about the grading policy which can be found here: Update from your District Leadership.

I encourage you to read the FAQ for Parents. which has updated details regarding grading.

While school is closed we still want to provide opportunities for students to connect with their teachers and peers and engage their minds. All students have the opportunity to improve their grades. If grades are where they want them - we encourage students to continue connecting with their teachers and classmates in whichever ways work best for them. There are opportunities to continue to practice and grow skills. Bottom line: learning is learning. This is a great opportunity to help your high school student understand that. Don't hesitate to reach out to me, to teachers, counselors, or any school staff to help you navigate the coming weeks.

All lockers (including PE/sports) have been emptied and are ready for families to pick up from the school. Come Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 10am-2pm to retrieve these items. No need to call or sign up in advance - just come to main office door and we will assist you. Families can start returning school items on Tuesdays/Wednesdays (books that are not needed, sports gear/uniforms, cameras, etc...)

Materials can be picked up every Tuesday and Wednesday between 10am and 2pm. On these days you will see a table outside our front office doors - come to the table and we will get you what you need.

*** If you picked up paper assignments this week or last - they will be automatically generated for you weekly. No need to sign up again. We have bins to drop off completed assignments when you arrive to pick up your new packet each week. We appreciate you returning the folder if possible.
