E-Learning Schedule

SCHEDULING IN THE HOME ENVIRONMENT: Scheduling is something that helps us to establish a sense of comfort and order through routine. Families can plan together a daily schedule that represents household needs, learning time, and personal needs, allowing student voice and choice in the process. Please refer to the school website for examples of home learning schedules.


Teachers will be available and communicate with students or parents during school hours or as needed.

Preschool - has sent home packets and apps for families to access.  Parents can contact Mrs. Rolf through Remind.
