Elevated Bits and Bytes

Weekly Update- December 2nd, 2022

This storm definitely brought snow and much colder temperatures! We had all grades on campus this week and students snowshoed, worked on some academics as well as created ornaments for a tree for the Festival of Trees at STHS. Check out the finished product below.

Students also tested out the new furniture which arrived the week before Thanksgiving break and overall, it was a huge hit!

Delayed Start vs. Snow Days

Just a remind about how Delayed Starts and Snow Days impact our digital school:

Today the district called for a delayed start meaning the brick-and-mortar schools started 2 hours later to allow time for the roads to be cleared and buses to roll. As an online school, Elevated will maintain our regular schedule on a delayed start day.

If and when the district calls a snow day, Elevated will also take a snow day as we have to maintain the same calendar. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us.
