Return to Face-to-Face Learning

All families will have the opportunity to change between in-person and virtual learning at the end of each nine-week grading period. To make a learning preference change starting with the second nine-week grading period, parents can do so using the Learning Preference Change Form between October 12, 2020 and October 26, 2020. The second nine-week grading period begins Monday, November 9, 2020.

This phase-in process allows the district and school staff to prepare and welcome scholars back to our classrooms. Thank you to parents and staff for your patience and partnership. We are in this together.
