Return to School!

Students in the Responsive Learning Plan will return to school for in person learning on Wednesday, November 11. Please be patient with us as we transition the whole school to a new plan. I've included a few highlights for next week below, in addition to a "Week at a Glance" summary by alpha and learning plan.


  • MASKS - All students and staff are required to wear masks. Students may remove their masks to eat lunch, but must put them back on as soon as they are finished eating. There are no exceptions to this rule. We take the health and safety of all students and staff very seriously. Students who refuse to wear their masks will be switched to virtual learning.
  • CHROMEBOOKS - If your student already has a district issued Chromebook, that will be the device that your student keeps for the remainder of this school year. Your student should bring that device to and from classes and school each day. If your student is in need of a device, we will provide them on your student's first day of school during 1st hour. Students are allowed to use a personal device, but this is not required.
  • SCHEDULES - Please be sure to check your student's schedule before next Wednesday. We are also mailing schedules home to all students.
