This newsletter contains important information, events, and course registration deadlines. If at any point you have a question, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Virtual Orientations

Please mark your calendars! During the day on September 8th and 9th, Distance Learning Academy staff will be hosting virtual student and family orientations. The virtual sessions will cover topics so that each student and family feel comfortable and confident to begin their first full day of learning starting on September 10th.

Specific information regarding the virtual orientations and how to R.S.V.P will be communicated the week of August 31st. Recordings will also be available for families.

Elementary Class Registration Information

All elementary students will receive Math, Reading/English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. Kindergarten and First Grade students will also receive Health and Physical Education. All Second through Fifth Grade students will receive Art and Physical Education. Students and families will receive login information before the virtual orientations so that they can practice logging in.

Secondary Class Registration

Core class registration is now open. Students and families in grades six through eight will be confirming their core classes.

Important: All secondary students will be able to select their electives during the week of August 31st. We apologize for the inconvenience.
