Message from the Superintendent (Remote Learning Schedule Update & Mid-Terms) post it

After gathering feedback from parents and teachers, the remote learning schedule has been altered slightly, allowing students to do work for electives and PE starting at 12:00 pm.  Please see the updated remote learning schedules attached.  We are already at the midterm period for the first quarter.  The transformation from in-person to remote learning has challenged us all to develop new skills and competencies.  We have revised the mid-terms to report on how well students have been adjusting to the remote learning environment, rather than reporting on actual grades at this time.
