Coronavirus Updates

ATTENDANCE: Beginning on 3/19/2020, students should log in to their 2nd period classroom and fill out the Google Form to be counted for attendance. If your child is in 6th or 8th grade, this is a core class. If they are in 7th grade, this will be a related arts class. 7th graders should check in with their A teachers on A days and B teachers on B days. You can check PowerSchool if you are unsure which day it is (3/19 is an A day).


If you or your student has any questions about the process at any time, reach out to your team leader. You can use the staff directory on this website for assistance with e-mail addresses.


School is now closed until April 20, 2020. Read Dr. Taylor’s message from 3/25 here.
