Back-to-School Face Covering Guidance for Families
OVERVIEW OF K-8 DISTANCE LEARNING
All students in kindergarten through eighth grade have weekly assignments that must be completed by the end of each week. We understand that many families are experiencing difficult situations during this pandemic and so we want to reassure you we will be partnering with parents to ensure scholars can be successful. This includes distribution of technology, teachers posting weekly assignments each Monday with a deadline of the following Sunday, and making ourselves available for communication throughout the week. As we work in partnership with families we also want families to be aware that both attendance and grades are used to make end of year promotional decisions.
