2020-2021 School Information

Message from Superintendent

Bobcat Families,

Please find attached the plans for returning to school. Our highest priority in trying to return to in person learning is the safety of students and staff.  Please read the letter carefully but please remember we are dealing with a very fluid situation and decisions may change based on circumstances and health orders.  I would also like to caution families to be wary of social media rumors as the ones that have been relayed to me so far are blatantly false and tend to cause agitation.  Please feel free to email me directly or call the school.  We know that it is going to be stressful but we are working hard and are committed to provide a quality education in a safe environment in as normal a fashion as we can possibly attain.

2) Install cameras in classrooms & set up with individual users for facial tracking

3) Set up network of devices in 30 classrooms

4) Set up charging station

5) Assist with user base level troubleshooting during initial deployment & training
