Important Information for 2nd Semester
First of all, thank you for allowing us to teach your students this semester. We appreciate all of your support as we navigated through unchartered waters. Your students are amazing and resilient and are doing AMAZING things! We know that as we transition to second semester, they will continue to do these amazing things.
As first semester has come to a close, we wanted to make you aware of the upcoming changes for second semester. Based of face-to-face vs. remote enrollment, student schedules and teacher assignments have changed. While the new schedules are not yet available, they will be available soon. Please read the below information on when you can expect your student's schedule and new Canvas courses to populate in PowerSchool and Canvas.
- By Monday night, all students will be moved into classes in PowerSchool and students can see their schedule in PowerSchool.
- By Tuesday night, all students should see their new classes in Canvas.
- Wednesday begins the new semester. Students that have been remote, will remain remote. Students that have been face-to-face will continue face-to-face.
On Wednesday, when the new semester begins, students will need to locate their schedule to determine the order of their classes. Teachers will post links in Canvas for students to access live sessions for Wednesday. Students will continue to follow the schedule they have been following for the last two weeks.
On Wednesday, you will get specific schedules regarding Encores for remote and F2F. For Remote students, Encore will take place at the beginning of the day. For F2F learners, Encore will take place at the end of the day.
9:40-10:50 (Remote - Encore & Recess)
3:10-4:10 (F2F - Encore and Recess)
