On Friday, September 11, our teachers will spend the afternoon on campus preparing for In-Person students. Students will engage in learning with their teachers the morning of September 11 (as we have been doing on a daily basis). After lunch, students will have asynchronous independent work for their afternoon classes. Attendance will be taken for all class periods (following our current attendance practices), and students will be expected to access their work for the afternoon on SeeSaw or Moodle. During this time, we will be making sure all safety protocols are in place and have been practiced by all staff members. As we have discussed since Spring Break, we are committed to making our campuses as safe as we possibly can for the challenging world we are living in.
