Back to School Choices

The district is asking all families to select their class format preferences for the 2020-2021 school year for each student by Wednesday, July 15, so that the district can appropriately plan for staffing needs. As a reminder, all students will begin the year with remote learning on Tuesday, August 4 and families that select either the Full-time Classroom or Split-Time Hybrid option will transition to campus when it is allowable.
