2nd Semester - begins Feb. 1, 2021

Distribution of Semester Two Learning Preference Survey: Tuesday, November 17 at 3 p.m.

A brief survey will be sent per child to guardians through BravesSquare. This survey will allow you to switch the learning preference for the second semester. The choices are in-person (hybrid) or virtual. It is important that we receive this information so we can plan for the second semester. Thank you!

  • This learning preference survey needs to be completed only if the learning preference is changing.
  • The two choices for the second semester are in-person or virtual. Our in-person learning model will remain hybrid - students learning in-person two days and remotely three days.
  • Please complete the survey by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, November 24. The second semester starts on February 1, 2021.

Changing learning preferences at the Primary-Elementary School would lead to a change in classroom teacher. At the secondary level, grades 6-12, there may be a change in teachers of classes due to the learning preference change.
