Starting Friday, October 30th we will close the school for a deep and thorough cleaning. All staff will report back on Monday, November 2nd and the students will not report back until November 9th. Thursday, October 29 will be our last Face to Face Instructional Day until students return on Monday, November 9. To be clear, the decision to go virtual is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our staff and students. In regards to sports, if the team is not quarantined we are still allowing for practices and games. Coaches will be in contact with their teams with information regarding times. I have attached the virtual schedules and online expectations for your reference. If you requested chromebooks at registration, they will be sent home with your students at the end of day tomorrow. Your building principal will be in touch with packet pickup times for those that are needing them. There will NOT be meals available during this week so please make accommodation for home meals.
