Hybrid students check in at 2:35
Example: I come to school on Monday and Tuesday but I am learning from home on Thursday and Friday so on Thursday and Friday I need to Zoom with my 8th hour teacher at 2:35. We offer this opportunity for your student to have face to face contact each day with a teacher. On their at home learning day this is done via Zoom. A student can Zoom in from their MacBook or from a cell phone. If your student does not show up they are marked absent in Skyward.

It is allergy season - please be reminded that the nurse’s office doesn’t supply medication for seasonal allergies. Students should take allergy medication at home.
