     Click here to view REMOTE LEARNING SCHEDULE Beginning 5/4/20    

    • Our “flexible schedule” will allow staff to present live lessons at specific times during the week while continuing to provide general instruction in various ways throughout the week. All live lessons will be recorded, archived and placed on the website or in their Google Classrooms for our students to view at any time if they are unable to attend the live lesson.  


    Important District Grading Message for Marking Period Three: 

    • All assignments that were completed by March 13th will be graded and counted in a traditional manner. 

    • Any assignment given during our remote learning (past three weeks) in marking period 3 can only serve to enhance a student’s grade; these assignments cannot be detrimental to a student’s grade.  

    • As such, in PowerSchool for Marking period 3, any remote learning assignment that you see in PURPLE is an assignment that has been “exempted” by the teacher because that grade would be detrimental to the student’s grade.
