Communications on 8/26 from Dr. Binder:

Dear students and parents:

I have a few updates for you as we head into the final 2 days of eLearning. On Monday, August 31, roughly half of you will be reporting back to school, and we are very excited to see you! Our wonderful Guidance Counselors are still cleaning up the scheduling mess. If your student does not have a schedule by Friday morning, please email me Friday morning so I can look into the problem. Thank you for your continued patience. Some schools were only mildly affected by this problem. Our schedules were mostly wiped out.

If you are scheduled for face-to-face learning beginning Monday:

  • I have attached the bell schedule for this school year. Our start and end times are 10 minutes later than in past years. Student drop-off is no earlier than 8:55. Dismissal on Mondays is at 3:30 and Tuesday through Friday dismissal is 4:30.
  • Masks are required for everyone on campus. No exceptions.
  • I have attached a map of the campus in case you need it. Parent may not walk students to class. We will have plenty of people to direct students where to go. Face to face students who still do not have a schedule on Monday will go to the cafeteria and we will make them a schedule.
  • Students are encouraged to bring water. Touchless water fountains are being installed but will not be ready for day 1.
  • Students are encouraged to bring an electronic device. All of our laptops are out on loan, so the more students who have their own device, the better.

If you are continuing eLearning beginning Monday you will need a microphone on your laptop and you should have a camera.

I have also attached the newsletter I usually send before school starts.

Almost there!

Dr. B
