Questions and Answers Regarding School Closure
Q- Will the length of the school closure be extended?
A - As of right now we are planning on a return to classes on April 15th. As new and or any information becomes available we will immediately make an announcement.
Q - Will students be provided school work during the closure?
A – We are working on providing Online resources that we will post on our website. Resources will continue to evolve if students are to be out of school for a more extended period of time. As of right now, we are hopeful that our Spartans will take advantage of the online resources posted on our website and the English opportunity that we are offering through google classroom. These are resources for continued learning and our hope that our Spartans take advantage of the online resources and the English opportunity for continued learning; however please know that, at this time, we are not being asked to complete work to be graded at this time.
Q - What if we do not have a computer to be able to do school work?
A - If our situation changes and our time away is extended after April 14th, we will have a plan for extended and distance learning, online and hard copy packet learning for all of our students. This will allow us to be able to serve ALL of our students no matter their technological and internet dynamic.
Q - How will the closure affect our students moving to their next grade?
A - This is my biggest concern beyond the physical health of everyone. Unfortunately, there is no doubt that the closure will have a negative impact on the educational and social development of our students. How significant that will be depends on how long we are closed. We will be doing everything that we can to support our students through this situation, and reopen school the very earliest possible.

A - No. Spring Break is scheduled for April 6-10 and will not change even if we open before then.

A - We absolutely want to be able to hold our Graduation Ceremony as scheduled. We believe that Graduation, like ALL of yearly events, will be dependent on what direction we receive from the State or Federal Governments.
