2020-21 Academic Year Reopening Plan

COVID-19 Health
and Safety

While the 2020-21 school year may look a little different, we are excited to have another amazing year of learning. The school year for students is 180 days long, running from August through May. We encourage parents/guardians and school district partners to please view our school reopening materials for details about COVID-19 safety measures being taken to ensure the health and safety of all students and team members.            

We are operating two models for our amazing students and their families:
  • Hybrid model: Onsite instruction Monday through Thursday from 8:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., with no early dismissal on Wednesdays. Friday instruction will be virtual from home.
  • Online-only option: Fully virtual with no onsite instruction.
On holidays, there is no school for either students or faculty. On in-service days, only students are off.
