The plan outlines the remote learning expectations, resources for parents, delivery of instruction for each grade level and information on how to communicate with your child’s teacher. Please be checking emails, school Facebook pages and Google Classrooms to ensure you are participating in the remote learning. Students will be expected to complete a weekly activity log and submit it to their assigned homeroom teacher. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your teachers or a school staff member by email. All teachers will be available during their virtual office hours, Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you want to request school meals, please go to the school website,, and fill out the School Closure Meal Service form. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to any student who completes the form. Meals will be prepared Monday through Thursday through the remainder of the school year.
