Middle School

Tuesdays through Friday, students will participate in the courses they selected in February, 2020. Students will receive Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and support during advisory time. When not engaged with their advisory class on Mondays, students will participate in asynchronous learning while teachers will engage in collaborative planning and small group interventions.

First Month Back – What to Expect

The first few weeks of school are important for building routines and establishing a strong community and foundation for learning. This will be an important time of transition as students get acclimated to new routines and expectations in the distance learning environment, and meet their teachers and new classmates.

Our initial priority will be building community, addressing students’ social-emotional needs, and making sure they are comfortable, acclimated, and ready to learn. We expect there will be challenges in the first few weeks. We ask for your support and patience as teachers and students adjust and as we build this important foundation for learning during the first few weeks.
