School Day
In order to make transportation work with new restrictions, the 5-12 school day has been adjusted. Class starts at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm. We also have to limit extra traffic in the building. To limit this traffic the doors will open at 8:30am and students will need to leave the building no later than 3:30pm. The doors will then remain locked for the evening. Students are not allowed in the building before 8:30am or after 3:30pm. 


A/B Calendar
Attached is the
A/B Calendar which specifies A and B days for the entire year. Even if school is canceled for a day, the A/B calendar will stay the same for the entire year.


Masks

All students (grades K-12) and staff will be required to wear a mask (Executive Order 20-81).  The Pine Island District will supply one mask to each student enrolled in the Hybrid Model.


 
Learning At Home
Students will again have days they are learning from home whether on the A/B rotation, or if they are on the family flex plan. The school day will follow the same schedule for students both at home and at school. Classes will start at 8:45am and finish at 3:15pm. Students will be required to checkin and join classes during the school day. Each teacher will communicate with students how they will participate in each class from home. Attendance and participation is required. 

 

Skyward

To check attendance and final course grades, you will need to know your Skyward login. Skyward will also be used to schedule conferences this year and view your student’s homeroom teacher and course schedule. You can find the link to Skyward at the bottom of the school district website.
