ATTN: UPDATED K-2 Attendance Policy


Starting Thursday, April 2
Please send a DAILY text, Remind, or Email to your child’s classroom teacher between 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for attendance. Include your child’s name as the subject. If we do not hear from you by 2:00 pm, your child will be marked absent for the day. If your child’s daily work is completed by 2:00 pm, you can send pictures and this will count as attendance.

Your child’s DAILY work will still need to be sent by 8:00 p.m, for tracking progress. If you send work after office hours, 8 to 3 p.m. you will get a response on the next school day. 

Thank you for your patience and flexibility! We are all in this together and you are doing great! 




Grades 3 through 12 please check in with your designated teacher by noon daily. 

Distance Learning is run just like the live classroom in that students will receive Pass/Fail status in grades K-8 and High School students will receive letter grades for each class.
The success of our students is very important to us, and we vow to our families to provide the tools and assistance to be successful. We ask that you as parents, support and encourage your child through this, knowing that we are here for questions and concerns.
