  • Important Information on Learning Platforms: 

    As we near the end of the second quarter/first semester, students and families have the ability to again switch learning models effective February 15, 2021, should you choose.  Please follow the directions below for how to change your student’s learning model and the deadlines for change. 
    Our K-6 100% online students will be transitioning away from Edgenuity.  Beginning February 15, Kindergarten and grade 1 will utilize SeeSaw, and grades 2 through 8 will utilize Google Classroom. All 100% Online students will be expected to participate in live teacher-led instruction from 9:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.  Monday through Friday. ​​​​​​​Online only teachers will host synchronous live sessions following this schedule that students will need to virtually attend:
    • ELA (45 min):  9:00-9:45 a.m.
    • Math  (45 min):  9:45-10:30 a.m.
    • Science (M, W, F) and SS (T, Th): (30 min.) 10:30-11:00 a.m. 
    • Small Group Tutoring and Progress Monitoring: 11:00-11:45 a.m. 
    • Lessons will be recorded and posted in Google classroom
    If you decide to keep your child as an online-only student, you do not need to do anything. 
    All K-6 families choosing to change their student(s) learning platforms, either from Hybrid to 100% Online OR 100% Online to Hybrid, should request this change between Monday, January 11 and Friday, January 15, 2021 at 3:30 pm. (This is NEXT week!) During this week, no appeal process is required to change your student’s learning model. Please contact the school during that week to make this request.  The change would be effective at the beginning of 3rd quarter, February 15, 2021.
