Good Morning Leopards!!! Today is Tuesday, September 1st!

Happy Virtual Learning!! 

BIG THANK YOU to all our students, parents, and staff for a wonderful Meet the Teacher day/night. We had a great turn-out at all the different grade levels and our hope is that everyone is ready and comfortable getting started! But in case you aren't there YET, we are here to help along the way!! 

Clarification of ENCLORE / ELECTIVE A/B classes: All students have classes in their schedule that are A or B, for example PE, Health, Art, Band, Choir. This is different from A/B days based on last name, and is very confusing because we use the same letters. Please help students understand how these classes are scheduled. 




    • A Days: Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Students whose last name is A-K will Zoom on Tuesday and do asynchronous work on Wednesday. Students whose last name is L-Z will do asynchronous work on Tuesday and Zoom on Wednesday. These are the only two days of the week the student will do assignments for this class.

    • B Days: Thursdays and Fridays. Students whose last name is A-K will Zoom on Thursday and do asynchronous work on Friday. Students whose last name is L-Z will do asynchronous work on Thursday and Zoom on Friday. These are the only two days of the week the student will do assignments for this class. 

    • On Mondays, asynchronous activities will be posted for both classes. Attendance will alternate each Monday (this policy is subject to change). 

    • Example: Sarah Sevener has A Day Band and B Day PE. She will do Band work on Tuesday, Zoom for Band on Wednesday, do PE work on Thursday, and Zoom for PE on Friday. 



Attendance: Attendance is taken everyday, Monday through Friday, based on students logging in to Canvas. Attendance will be logged in the same way on days they are receiving synchronous direct instruction, and it will be taken for each class period of the day, as it would be when they are physically in school. On independent remote learning days or asynchronous days, attendance will be based on logging into Canvas and completing assigned work.

Cross Country: Cross Country official first practice will be held today, Tuesday, September 1st at Lincoln Park @3-4pm. Good luck to those that have been running all summer and who qualify! A tentative Parent Zoom Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 3rd @7pm. Coach Lynn will have more information at Tuesday's practice.

Check Your Email!!! Students, please check your email on a daily basis, multiple times per day. Read through them carfeully as some emails contain directions to help students navigate this new learning curve. Always let us know if we can be of help :)
