No More Rainy Day (minimum day) Schedule

As Dr. Doyle mentioned in last week's Community Update, secondary schools will no longer pivot to a minimum day schedule on Classic days in which rain is in the forecast. These days will be REGULAR bell schedule days. Our site has acquired additional canopies for dry space options, and once students have finished eating at lunch, they will be able to seek shelter in large open spaces, such as our gymnasium, theater, library, etc.
On-Campus Safety Video for Students

This video outlines many of the safety expectations and protocols that will be in place for Classic students. We shared it in October, but this serves a nice refresher for students.
