High School Updates

Updated October 30, 2020

Remote learning continues. Classes include live-streamed/synchronous instruction utilizing a block schedule. Beginning Monday, October 26, 9th through 12th-grade students will have an opportunity to receive optional academic help in a social, face to face setting once a week through our updated cohort scheduling. These cohorts will have an opportunity to be on campus once a week from 1:30-3:00 PM. Masks, distancing, and cohort regulations will all be enforced, and sign up is required, according to grade level. Students will also be able to access some in-person music and/or art instruction. Counseling will continue to be available for students via Zoom or on campus as needed.

The administration team continues to closely monitor the new Tier system for full school (including 7th-12th grade) openings.
