WHEN SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED FOR STUDENTS FOR A FULL DAY, WE MAY TRANSITION TO A WEATHER-RELATED REMOTE LEARNING DAY:

 Weather-related remote learning:

All 261-day employees are to report to work on time.

Parents/students should check Schoology for assignments or conferences at or before the normal start time of their school day.

  • Teachers, aides, counselors and other school-based staff who can work from home may work from home if they have the capability to do so (for teachers/aides this includes live conferencing). If these staff cannot achieve this from home, then they must report to school to deliver their remote instruction or fulfill their work day.

  • This is a contract day that will not be made up.

Snow day:

All school-based and non-261-day employees stay home. There will be no remote learning for students.
