School Schedule

Your child will be learning five days a week, whether in person or at home. We have planned for blended learning, in which students will be taught in school buildings for part of the week, and will continue learning remotely from home on the other days of the week.

As part of our school’s model for reopening, students that have chosen to take part in Blended Learning have been split into two cohorts. Each cohort will be in the school building part of the time, and working remotely from home for the remainder of the week. The school day for this school year will be from 8:30am-2:00pm. As previously announced our school has been approved to use blended learning Model 1A for the fall.
