    Week of 9/14 Principal Update
    Posted on 09/15/2020

    Dear Families,

    A more detailed version of this week's news can be found at:

    We made it through our first days of remote learning with close to 100% of our students making it to class in our Schoology system. It was wonderful to see them and we should all be proud of our students. They are navigating their new school structures, learning technology quicker than many adults and supporting their classmates through it all. One of the highlights of the week was when one of our students showed me how to customize my Teams background!

    I also love seeing students independence in this remote world. Continue to have students contact teachers, counselors and administrators through schoology when they need support.

    This week we begin our "normal" academic schedule at 9am. Please see or for specific times.

    Monday/Thursday, Periods 1/2/3

    Tuesday/Friday, Periods 4/5/6

    Wednesdays, Advisory and Periods 1-6

    All class links can be found in the course information folders on class Schoology pages.

    Students should be sure to restart their computers every few days to make sure that new updates are loaded. I recommend that they do this at least one hour before a scheduled class.

    This week, we will continue to build community, teach students the basic technology that they need to navigate, explain how small group time will work, and begin our first days of academic learning.

    This is a good week to start asking your students about their work in class. We also pleased to begin our Library on the Lawn hours. Students may come by on Wednesdays from 11-1pm to pick up books. All students should be reading a book of their choice for at least 30 minutes a day.

    I look forward to seeing many of you at this week's family forums and getting to know your students in classes this week. All times and information are on our webpage and in our smore newsletter. 

    Go Jaguars!
