Your bus stop and pick-up time is the same from before we went virtual unless transportation has called you.

Enrichment Opportunities

COVID-19 has created stress and uncertainty in all of our lives. It has also impacted our students because of the lack of in-person learning based on the Marion County Health Department's safety guidance regarding learning during the COVID pandemic. We are committed to support all of our students to ensure that extra help is available for those who need it. Our plan to provide extra academic assistance is as follows:

  • We are providing tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. We will have buses to transport your child home, but they will need to be dropped off at door 1 at 4:00pm. Please email your grade level counselor if you intend to use this service everyday or occasionally.

    5th grade: Mr. James -
    6th grade: Ms. Roberts -
    7th grade: Mrs. Gullion -
    8th grade: Mrs. Nicholson -

  • We are offering Virtual Learning Hub Remediation on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30pm to 4:00pm. Student can reach out to their teachers if they need additional help, however, teachers will be contacting families of students who are struggling academically to inform them of the time that students will need to join the zoom sessions for remediation.

  • We are also having face-to face Learning Hub Remediation for students who we have identified as the most in need of the service based on fall 2020 NWEA math and ELA scores and their current grades. This is an "by invitation only" service. Face to face Learning Hubs will begin on January 19th. Virtual Learning Hubs will begin on January 12th. Teachers will be emailing you and your student their virtual LH time and zoom link.

District Second Semester Return Plan

5th grade in-person students will return to learning in our building this Tuesday, January 19th.

6th-8th grade students will have virtual learning on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and application days on Tuesday and Thursdays. This will be the schedule while we are 100% virtual. Upon our return to face to face AND virtual learning in February, we will return to the Black and Gold schedule.

Our 5th grade students will remain virtual until January 15th and will return to school, face to face, on January 19th. 5th grade students who were virtual before winter break, will remain virtual on January 19th.

6th-8th grade students who were HYBRID (came to school, face to face, on their Black or Gold schedule), will remain virtual until February 12th and will return to school, on their HYBRID Black or Gold schedule on Wednesday, February 17th.

Third Quarter Material Pick-Up

We still have several students and families who need to pick up learning materials that will be used during the third instructional quarter. Materials can be picked up in the front office between 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM daily. Please only send one family member into the office to retrieve materials.
