MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL UPDATES

Based upon feedback during Metro's recent Remote Learning Protocol , both Middle School and High School are migrating to Google Classroom for all classes. Transitioning all Middle and High School classes to Google Classroom as a platform of communiqué helps provide a consistent experience for all teachers and students and allows for a seamless transition for our students from Metro’s Middle School to Metro’s High School.

The 2020 Summer Reading Assignments have been posted to the Parent and Student Portals. Click here to login to your new Veracross Parent Portal. The Reading Lists may be found under the Programming tab in the top band and then by clicking on either the Middle School page or High School page.
