In-Person Education 2020-21: Group Assignments

For our students who will be learning in person for 1st Semester here is important information. We are starting the school year in the Yellow Zone of Operation and students will attend in-person on the following schedule:

Group A

  • Students who have a last name that starts with A-L* will attend school in-person on Mondays and Thursdays. 
  • First day is August 24th

Group B:

  • Students who have a last name that starts with M-Z* will attend school in-person on Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • First day is August 25th

Group C

  • C Group (Specified Students) on the following schedule:
    • Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri for full days
    • AND a 1/2 day on Wed (elementary 9:15-12:25, secondary 7:50-11:00).
  • First day is August 24th

*Families with students in the same household that have different last names will be contacted by phone starting on Friday, July 31st and Monday, Aug 3rd. We have assigned these in the same group according to households that are currently reported in our student management system. 

NOTE: Due to the complexity of scheduling students and keeping our A & B groups balanced, we will not be able to accommodate changes and special requests. In order to keep our building and classroom enrollment balanced, create new master schedules and busing routes, we are unable to take any special requests to move student schedules.
