Middle and High school students/families
Keep an eye on your email for a message from your school Monday, August 3. It will contain a new Learning Environment Preference form based on our revised Restart Plan that now designates a hybrid learning environment (with remote-only option) for students in these grades. We are asking that families please complete the new form by Friday, August 7 to support school planning. Reach out to your school if you feel unprepared to complete the form.
Schools will be communicating details of their plans, orientation schedules, and other start-of-school information. If you have questions about a specific situation or student, please call or email your school - administrative and office staff are back in buildings.
