2020-2021 School Year
Middle and high school students in both the hybrid and synchronous online options will participate in live lessons at home on the first day of school.

Students will follow their daily schedules and access their courses at the designated time for each period.

On-Campus Days for Grades 6-12
Students enrolled in the on-campus hybrid instructional model at either the middle school or high school will attend classes on-campus on Thursday OR Friday, according to the first letter of their last name. The alphabetical assignments for both schools are as follows: 
  • Students with last names A-L will attend school in-person on Thursdays.
  • Students with last names M-Z will attend school in-person on Fridays.
This alphabetical split will allow for maximum physical distancing in our schools. Unfortunately, we cannot honor requests to switch a student's on-campus instructional day, except for instances where individual families have children with different last names that fall on either end of the alphabet. If you have questions, please contact your child's principal or assistant principal. We appreciate your understanding and support.
