Weekly Updates for March 22

Hello High School Scholars and Families:

We hope that you had an amazing weekend and that you continue to stay healthy and safe.  This week will close out of 3rd quarter of the school year so we want to provide you with some updates as we head into our final week before Spring Break.  

Quarter 3 gradebooks will close for teachers on this Friday, March 26.  All students should continue to log into class daily for instruction and attendance.  Please make sure that all work is submitted before Friday so that it can be counted and recorded for the 3rd quarter.  

Please NOTE: Friday, March 26 is a scheduled half day for both students and staff.  Students will have an asynchronous learning day on Friday to complete any work.  Students should log into each teacher's Google Classroom to check in for attendance and any assigned work for the half day.  There will be no Google Meetings on Friday.  This is an independent work day for students once they have logged into their Google Classrooms.  

Spring Break will begin on March 27 and go through April 5, 2021.  All classes, both online and in person will resume on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.  Please stay safe and enjoy your break.  

Quarter 4 will also begin on Tuesday, April 6.  We will continue to offer both distance (online) learning as we have all school year, as well as the Hybrid In Person learning.  As a reminder, Monday and Tuesday is designated for local, eastside, and downriver students while Thursday and Friday is for our westside students.  Wednesday is a distance (online) learning day for all students.  Students who were in person for Quarter 3 will remain on our in person list for Quarter 4 - these students do NOT need to complete the in person application again.  If you did not attend in person during Quarter 3 but would like to opt in for the in person learning in Quarter 4, you MUST complete the in person application with the link below.  It is important for us to track which students are in the building for safety precautions.

As a closing reminder, this week is the final week of the 3rd marking period; please log into classes daily, turn in your work, and meet with your teachers as needed to ensure a strong finish to Quarter 3!  Have an amazing week!
