Report Cards and Grades

All grades are in an updated in Eduphoria. You can see if your student passed the semester with the S1 grade. This will determine if virtual is even an option.

We will send official report cards out when we return, but Skyward is updated with all grades.

Teachers are asked to turn off their emails and remind. They will answer all questions when they return on January 11th. If your student failed 2 or more core classes, they will be required to attend school in person.

What if someone travels Outside the United Stated? - Example: Mexico

You must get tested 3-5 after returning and to quarantine for 7 days. If you don't want to get tested we ask that you quarantine for 14 days upon return.



Here are additional guidelines from the CDC website for those that go anyway (the short version):

If you must travel:

  • Before you travel, get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before your trip. Do not travel if you are waiting for test results, test positive, or are sick. Follow all entry requirements for your destination and provide any required or requested health information.
  • During travel, wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from people who are not traveling with you, wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer, and watch your health for signs of illness.
  • Before traveling back to the United States, get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before travel. Follow all destination and airline recommendations or requirements.
  • After you travel, get tested 3–5 days after travel AND stay home for 7 days after travel.
    • If you don't get tested, it's safest to stay home for 10 days.
    • If you had a known exposure to COVID-19 while traveling, delay travel, quarantine from other people, get tested, and monitor your health.
