Attention parent’s who have changed your Child’s learning platform for the 4th 9 weeks.... -Their first day will be April 5th. -As we have worked to fit them into a new schedule, their schoology dashboard will show their “old” classes, as well as their their “new” classes for the first week, please do not be alarmed. - We will give them their new schedule upon their arrival to school on April 5. - It is possible that your student may have a related arts class that they have already had. We have tried to avoid this as much as possible, but it is a possibility. If you have questions about this, please feel free to contact Mr. Shock at school. -Please encourage your students to continue to do their work. This has been a difficult year on everyone, we hope we can finish this last 9 weeks strong and have a little bit of normalcy for next year 💚
