End of Trimester 1

Congratulations to all for completing the first trimester in this unique year. We know this has been so hard for families as we navigate these uncertain times. We appreciate our families so very much! We know that you are making sacrifices and that you have been thrown into a very difficult situation. Thank you for your continued support! We couldn't do it without you!


As we head into the second trimester I would like to ask for your continued assistance and partnership to help make the educational experience run smooth.


  • Reminder: Now that we are in the Hybrid Program, students attend school from 8:45-2:55 (except Wednesdays). They are expected to attend the entire day! The afternoons are small group, whole group, or asynchronous work via Zoom at home. Critical interventions, small group instruction, etc. are taking place in the afternoons via Zoom and several students are not showing up for their assigned Zoom instruction. We don't want anyone missing these important learning opportunities!


  • When your child is Zooming from home, please check for engagement. Is your child following along with the teacher, is your child on the right screen, is your child signing off too early?


  • Hybrid Absences: If your child is in the Hybrid Program and attending on site, the expectation is that they will be in class, unless they are not feeling well. Students do not have the option to Zoom instead of attending school for convenience or other reasons other than illness. If this happens frequently, your student will be exited from the Hybrid Program and placed on Distance Learning. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


Thank you so much for everything you are doing!
