Distance Learning

Q. If we opt into distance learning, are we committing to that program for the entire school year regardless of changes in COVID numbers, or will there be an option to integrate back into the on-campus program if COVID becomes more contained?
Parents will be allowed to change their students’ learning model after the school year begins at quarterly intervals. If compelled to do so by the state, the school could return to a full distance learning program.

Q. Will Clever be accessible on older electronic devices?
Clever is compatible with all computer devices with internet access.  If you are accessing Clever via a web browser, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge or Internet Explorer 2013 or later all work.  The Clever app is compatible with iOS devices (e.g. iPads, iPhones) versions 9.0 or later, and is available for download from the App Store.

Social Distancing

Students will have a “grab and go” lunch that they will walk down to the lunchroom and get and bring back to their homeroom class.

Special Services

Q. How will special education services be handled?

Q. Will in-classroom volunteers be allowed?
At this time, in-classroom volunteers will not be allowed. 

Q. Are paper packets an option?
Packets will not be an option this year, as we found that it was difficult to determine whether student progress was being made using packets.
