2020-21 School Year: Remote Learning Edition

January 11- January 25, 2021

Hello 2021!

End of 1st Semester

We are on the home stretch with 1st semester ending January 28th, it goes without saying that this is the time to rally and finish strong in your classes. The last week of the semester we will have a different “bell” schedule for finals week, please see below for more information on that.


2nd Semester Info

Right now student schedules are being worked on for 2nd semester as we continue to make preparations for our hopeful transition to Hybrid In-person learning. We are still weeks away from student schedules being finalized, so we are asking students to hold off making any requests to change your schedule. As a reminder, students will have different teachers and different classes than they were originally scheduled. The plan right now is to make 2nd semester schedules visible to students by January 25th which will be followed by an opportunity to make appropriate change requests.


Also, soon you will be notified which cohort you are being placed into (A or B) which will designate which days you will be on campus or attending your online classes once we make that transition (which again has not been determined as of yet).


In Family Class on both 1/25 and 2/1 we will give you more information on preparations for 2nd semester.


Class of 2021! We will have a drive up event for you on 1/25 from 2-4. We have a few gifts for you as a way of encouraging you to keep working hard the last week of the semester. More info to come on this.


To all our students and families supporting them, thanks in advance for all of your efforts these last few weeks and for being a part of the Fife High School community.


Sincerely,


Brandon Bakke

Principal
