Academics

  • Welcome back for the 2020 - 2021 school year!

     

    Attendance and classwork

    Whether in school or at home, daily participation is expected in order to be counted present.

    Starting this fall, students will be using Seesaw or Google Classroom to participate in classes and complete assignments. Students in second through fifth grades will be transitioning from Google Classroom to the new Canvas learning platform for class assignments, specials, and the library.

    Your teacher should send you the information you need to get connected to their learning platform and participate in remote instruction through Zoom. Please contact your child's teacher if you have questions.
