Important clarification for the week of March 15

This message is to provide further clarification regarding the switch for next week based on House Bill 4048 to offer a minimum of 20 hours of in-person instruction starting March 22, 2021. On Monday, March 15, the Board of Education will meet to consider offering 4 days of in-person instruction to all students beginning on March 22. Please read the message you received on Friday for information on HB 4048. To accommodate this potential change, the start of the third trimester will be delayed until March 22.

What does this mean for your student?
