4+1 Instructional Model

General Information

We are planning to move to four days of in-person instruction. Beginning January 27, in-person students will attend in person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Students will continue to have the 100% remote learning option. All students, in-person and remote, will complete course activities remotely on Wednesdays. The first day of in person learning will be Thursday, January 28th.

More information about the 4+1 instructional model can be found in the 9-12 Playbook on the district website.


Parking and Student Drop Off

As a reminder, students may park in either of the southern parking lots. We ask that parents drop off students along Annie Street and avoid the bus lane to allow buses to travel smoothly through campus in the mornings and afternoons. Additionally, please avoid student drop off in the western parking lot by the tennis courts to allow for more smooth traffic flow for student parking and access.


Lunch

With the 4+1 model, we will be able to move to open campus for lunch. Students will be allowed to walk home or drive to local restaurants for lunch.


Canvas

Teachers will continue to maintain their Canvas pages even though students will be attending in person for more days. We will still have remote students in classes and students will still utilize Canvas when quarantined. We have a created a simple, click-able, guide to all teachers' Canvas pages that will be available on our school website starting next Wednesday.

The Importance of Sleep

Did you know that teenagers need 9.25 hours of sleep per night for optimal mental and physical health? 73% of adolescents in the United States are sleep deprived. This can have long term impacts on both physical and mental health and development. Make sure your student is getting enough sleep each night with a consistent bedtime routine.
