In-person Instruction

  • On Monday, December 14 the Board of Education approved the return to in-person school for students whose families want that option. Beginning Tuesday, January 19 through Monday, February 1, schools will begin to phase in students who choose to return to in-person instruction. Elementary schools will open first, followed by middle schools, and then high schools.

    With the return of in-person instruction for any student who wishes to attend, the in-person/remote learning option is now an in-person instruction option and a remote instruction option.
