Schedule for the Week of August 31, 2020
The schedule has been revised to allow more time between classes and a brunch break has been added to Wednesdays. This schedule will be used starting on Monday, August 31st.
When students miss class...
We have students who are not showing up to the required live Zoom/Google Meets each period. Please understand that under SB98, schools must account for attendance and participation. By communicating with us, we can assist with technical issues and even the social-emotion issues that can affect student affect participation and attendance.
By calling in absences you also save us manpower as we are personally calling the homes of students who miss classes. And, you will not receive the attendance call if you let us know.
We thank you fro your partnership during this difficult time.
