Welcome to the start of Quarter 3. Today you begin fresh with a new set of classes, teachers, and classmates. This is an exciting opportunity to recommit to your goals, and also acknowledge where you need support to finish the school year strong. We have a wide network of resources and staff members here to help you – we know that learning in a pandemic is anything but normal. We are here for you!
This week’s schedule is modified. Today is an asynchronous Q3 orientation day and live instruction will begin on Wednesday, following our regular M/T/Th/F bell schedule for the remainder of the week.
Below are instructions for your asynchronous orientation day – it’s a light day intended for you to get your bearings with the new courses you are taking this term. Each teacher has posted an asynchronous activity to introduce themselves and get to know you before live instruction begins on Wednesday. You can complete these activities at your own pace today. We will start with Period 1 Live Instruction at 7:45am on Wednesday, January 6.
