In the event we go fully remote

All Google Classroom instruction will begin at 8:30 am and will end at 2:00 pm.

Each teacher will post their schedule for the day and the Zoom link on their Google Classroom page.

If your child has art, PE, music, Brain Power, or technology, they will have that subject at their normal time, depending upon the day of the week. For example, if your child has PE on Monday period 2, they will have PE at 9:00 am. The PE teacher will post a link in your child’s Google Classroom and on their page.
