Remote Learning Update

We hope that this newsletter continues to find you and your family healthy during this time. We are entering the final two weeks of remote learning!

Please continue to support your student(s) in getting assignments completed and turned in. We want everyone to get credit for the 4th marking period and for the semester!

The last day to turn in assignments will be June 5, 2020. Teachers will use the remainder of the school year, grading assignments and updating Power School.

Please note that while the classes currently show letter grades (A-F), the final grade for both the 4th Marking Period as well as the 2nd Semester will be displayed as Credit, No Credit or Incomplete when report cards are finalized.

Drop Off/Pick Up June 4th and 5th

We have scheduled dates and times for Student Supply Drop off and Personal Belonging Pick Up on June 4th and 5th from 12:00-3:00pm.

We will have grade level stations and a chromebook station set up in the CIS Parking Lot. All desks and lockers have been cleaned out and bagged according to homeroom teacher.

When you pull into the parking lot, you will be directed to the chromebook station to return your chromebook. Please bring your Chromebook in the case with the charger. You will then be directed to your homeroom teacher's station to return library books and to pick up your personal belongings.

Students and families will not be entering the building. All supplies will be handled in the parking lot. If you or your student is ill, exhibiting any illness type symptoms, have a fever, or been around anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, please do not come to drop off or pick up supplies at this time. Please contact the school to make an appointment.
