*Important Update Regarding 2020-21 Minimum Days While In Remote Learning: During remote learning, minimum days need to meet the daily minute requirement set for in Senate Bill 98.  Requirements for each grade level span is as follows; 180 for TK/K,  230 for 1st - 3rd, and 4th -5th 240 minutes. Current minimum day schedules do not meet this minute requirement, therefore teachers will adjust their daily schedules to have synchronous instruction (live interaction on zoom/google meets) to occur  in the morning and asynchronous work (independent work) scheduled for the remainder of the day.  Individual schools will share modified bell schedules as applicable.
