    REMINDER: No School Friday, April 9 for a Teacher Planning Day

    Dear Families,

    Thank you for reaching out and staying connected during this time of change.  It was so nice to see so many families at our hybrid info session this past Wednesday. Resources from that information session are shared below. We are excited to transition to our new schedule on Monday, April 5. At this point, teachers should have shared schedules with you. If you have not received a schedule or know what to expect on Monday, please reach out to your student’s teacher.

    CDL and Hybrid Student Schedules

    Teachers have shared schedules with families this week for both AM CDL cohorts and any AM or PM Hybrid cohorts.  This schedule should include any ESL service, Special Education service, Speech service or Reading intervention service.   Please contact your child’s teacher if you have not received the schedule.   Wednesday is an asynchronous learning day, unless your child is scheduled to attend a small group with a specialist.  Questions? Contact your child’s teacher via email or Remind.

    • Material distribution: We will resume on April 7, 9am-12pm and 1-4pm
