Remote Learning

Yesterday, Mr. Gurka announced that we would transition to remote learning.  We will be utilizing a remote schedule, so students will start the day with their homeroom and student advocate like they did at the beginning of the school year.  Since students are transitioning to their second quarter wheel/exploratory class in grades 5-7; they will receive an invite to their new Google Classroom on Monday from those teachers.  Moreover, each team will be communicating their remote schedule on Monday to ensure that our students are prepared for Tuesday and the remainder of the week.  Also, please note that students will stay with their current teachers and teams.  Only students who have a new course because we are starting the 2nd academic quarter will have a new teacher.

As always, I appreciate the support for our students, staff, and community as we move forward with this school year.
 
Thanks,
Jeff
