We are quickly preparing for the return of students on the first day of school on September 8th. As we review our final plans, we realized we needed to make some adjustments to ensure an equitable school experience so that each student can start the school year strong. To help our students feel confident and comfortable on their first day, we are making the following adjustments.

Our transition week, August 31st through September 3rd will now focus on scheduling times for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12 to pick up devices, materials and textbooks. If students are unable to pick up their materials, they will be provided during the week of Sept. 8. Please see our full schedule below. During this week, students will no longer attend school on their designated hybrid in-person day as previously scheduled.   Hybrid in-person days will not begin until the first day of school on Sept. 8 (see schedule below).
