October 2 - Two Additional Schools Added for Reopening, Free WiFi Locations

We are adding two schools to the list to reopen next week. These schools will reopen to faculty and staff on Monday, October 5, while students will return on Thursday, October 8. We will be following our 7th-12th grade Blue/Gold schedule that was previously established, meaning Thursday is the first day for our gold schedule, and the following Monday will be the first day for our blue schedule.

If any student is unable to return in a face-to-face environment, they can check in with their assigned teacher and continue with virtual learning already in progress. This list is subject to change depending on power restoration and other assessment factors that may unexpectedly occur.
