Scarborough High School

November 6, 2020

Dear Students, Families, and Staff:

We are delighted to say that today we completed the first quarter! We feel like celebrating that milestone! This month gives us a couple of respites - Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving break. We will begin the second quarter and some students have shifted to remote learning while others have joined the hybrid model, so there will be some adjustments there. The fall season is winding down and we are waiting for more information on a winter season. We have been rethinking mid-term exams and how that will look in January and more information on that will be forthcoming soon, likely before the next monthly letter in December.
