Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that fall break is just around the corner. We are excited to welcome back nearly 200 students as they are joining us for face to face instruction on October 19th! If your student is transitioning to face to face learning, please note some changes and annual updates for this year:


-Students must register for transportation services prior to riding the bus. (Link below)

-Free and Reduced Meals Application must be submitted for benefits to apply (Link below)

-Our school start time is 7:35 a.m. (Doors open at 7:05)

-All students must wear a face covering in the building and in the classroom

-School supply list is also linked below


Updates for everyone:

-Quarter 1 grading window will close on Friday 10/9

-Schedules will be updated in Skyward for returning students on 10/9 and 10/10

-Virtual students may also have a schedule change if their virtual teacher is becoming a face to face teacher. The schedule will be in Skyward on 10/9 and 10/10.



I hope you all have a wonderful fall break and we look forward to seeing so many new faces on October 19th!


Sincerely,

Courtney Rodriguez

Reduced/Free Meals Application- Deadline is near!

The deadline for submitting the Free/Reduced Meal Form is due this week. The form can be filled out here through the website or with a direct submission through Skyward. If a family qualifies for Reduced/Free meals, it will also reduce the amount owed for the annual Tech Fee.

Tech Fees- It's not too late to pay

All students (Virtual and Face to Face) are required to have annual Tech Fees paid by September of each year. The deadline for Tech Fees is 9/28/20. Fees not paid by this day will result in student accounts being changed to "education only". Information on "education only" is below.


Education-Only Filters

On a student Chromebook, a Securely web-filter is used to restrict access to all resources that are not explicitly approved. Any online material not directly available through one of the approved websites will be blocked for students.


Please note that web searches do not work while on Education Only. Students will need to navigate directly to the approved webpage. All course content built inside Canvas will be available to students. Students will also be able to access material embedded (not linked) into Canvas pages.


How are students placed in Education-Only?

Students are placed in Education-Only for one of two reasons:

  • They have a past-due fee/fine

  • By the explicit request of a parent or principal
