MESSAGE FOR STUDENTS:

We are still participating in extended digital learning. Moving forward we will follow the schedule that is posted from 8:25am – 3:30pm. You will be learning new content and there will be more than just a follow-up practice activity required. Your teachers are working hard to design quality work for you that will require you to engage in your learning every day. You will be experiencing a flipped classroom model that will allow you to continue your learning in a digital environment with your teacher. You should keep up with all Canvas coursework and participate in all online lessons, discussion, and conferences. Should you have questions, please reach out to your teachers via email or Canvas.

MESSAGE FOR PARENTS

While we are out of the regular school environment, your student will continue to receive high quality instruction in an on-line format. This adjustment will require an ongoing commitment. We need and appreciate your support as students will be engaged in learning that requires more screen time. Teachers will provide opportunities for students to master new content, complete assignments, and submit online. Teachers will also use a variety of digital tools to provide regular instruction and maintain personal contact with students. Students should keep up with all Canvas coursework and participate in all online lessons, discussion, and conferences. Should you have questions, please reach out to your student’s teachers via email or Canvas.

UPDATE FROM COLLEGE BOARD

https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-up..


The College Board is developing tools to mitigate the impact of school closures on students in the Advanced Placement Program. All AP students and teachers will be able to draw on the free online resources that were provided to every AP classroom this fall. Additional resources will be made easily accessible to AP students and teachers through mobile phones and other devices. These include free online AP lessons and review sessions from some of the top AP teachers in the country.
The AP program is finalizing streamlined AP exam options that would allow students to test at home, depending on the situation in May. We’re working to give every AP student the opportunity to claim the credit they’ve earned. The AP Program will communicate the details of these additional solutions to educators and students by March 20.
The College Board’s focus will remain on student safety and ensuring all students have the tools they need to work, and opportunities to receive the credit they have earned, during this challenging time.

SAT EXAM UPDATE
In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. Registered students will receive refunds.
The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
