As we begin to welcome some of our students back to the building this week we wanted to share important information with you. Please be sure to review the bullets in the section below as well as the videos and links throughout the newsletter.


  • If families elected for their student(s) to return to school based on the district survey ,students will enter back into the building under Plan B, 2 days a week beginning Monday October 19. Students coming on track A will come Monday and Wednesday and students on track B will come Tuesday and Thursday.
  • Students who will be remaining virtual as well as students who are on an off track face to face day will participate in live synchronous instruction via MS Teams as they have since the beginning of the year. Live synchronous instruction will begin at 8:30 and end around 10:10. Students will also participate in small groups throughout the week (days and times will be communicated by your child's teacher).
  • Friday will continue to be an asynchronous learning day for all students. **Please note that there will be NO instruction this coming Friday, October 23 due to a teacher workday**
  • As our teachers begin to welcome back in their classrooms they may not be able to respond to emails and Dojo messages as quickly as they could when they were teaching 100% remote. Teachers will, however, respond to messages within 24 hours. If you have an issue that needs immediate attention please contact our front office.


As always please feel free to reach out to our front office with any questions that you have. We can't wait to see some of our Roadrunners back in the building this week!
