Learning at Home with Virtual Instruction (ongoing)

This school year, students will always have the opportunity to learn at home through virtual instruction. Explore sample student schedules, download the family guide for learning at home, and review other resources for students and families.

Term 2 Updates and CARE Classrooms

The decision to take a significant step and plan to reopen our elementary schools is guided with safety and equitable access top of mind. It is our hope to allow more students, especially those furthest from opportunity, to return to school buildings and receive the critical supports that prepare them for lifelong success. Learn more about in-person programming available for students in grades PK-8th and download resources from the CARE Classroom family guide.

Term 3 Updates and In-Person Learning

It remains our belief that a safe and healthy in-person learning opportunity is the best way to teach and reach students who are facing significant barriers to success with virtual learning. In Term 3, which starts February 1, 2021, all schools will offer in-person learning opportunities for students.
