Returning to Instruction Following Winter Break

As we did after Thanksgiving Break, all classes districtwide will be VIRTUAL ONLY Monday, Jan. 4, 2021 to Friday, Jan. 8, 2021 — the first week back after Winter Break.

For families who choose in-person instruction, those students will transfer from virtual instruction to in-person instruction starting Monday, Jan. 11, 2021. The in-person bell time/instruction schedule is as follows. Please take note of the release time.  
Schools that start at 7:10am will release at 1:07pm
Schools that start at 8:05am will release at 2:02pm
Schools that start at 8:15am will release at 2:12pm
Schools that start at 9:10am will release at 3:07pm
Schools that start at 9:20pm will release at 3:17pm

Depending on the results of the survey, the majority of middle and high schools and some elementary schools will likely be on an A/B schedule, where half of the students will be in-person on Monday and Tuesday, and the other half will be in-person Wednesday and Thursday. Please check with your school leader for details.
