Learning Packets

Learning packets for the weeks of 6/1/20 and 6/8/20 will be optional and will not be entered into the gradebook. If you still need to complete previous week's packets, please work on those and get them turned in. We will not be collecting the 6/1/20 and 6/8/20 learning packets.

Remote Learning Reminders

The start of June always signifies the winding down of the school year. This is the one thing that is consistent this year, from previous years.

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.

Google Hangouts Meet (Teacher Office Hours)

Teachers will meet on Wednesday this week. They will not have office hours on Monday or Friday.

4th Grade

5th Grade


Assignments will be graded as Credit or Incomplete during the 4th Marking Period with Remote Learning. If students choose not to complete the assignments they will receive No Credit for 4th Marking Period. Remote learning progress data may be utilized when determining if a student qualifies to proceed to the next grade level during the 2020 - 2021 school year.
