    Schedules for- September 14th-18th

    • To help our students transition from a soft start to a full schedule, the expectation this week will be that students attend the morning meeting, lunch and specials meets.  Lunch is on your own. 
    • Your child will continue to practice using Seesaw and teachers will communicate with families about how reading, writing, math and science instruction will be implemented gradually.  We want to acknowledge the transition students are making from soft start and support building their stamina for online learning.
