Instructional Support Days April 17 and 18

April 17 and 18 are Instructional Support Days.

Instructional support days provide an opportunity for both remediation and deeper understanding on the topics covered in class.  Possible learning opportunities could include assessments (which could require in-person attendance), performances, conferences, completion of assignments as determined by each teacher.  Classroom teachers work with their students at assignment completion, and/or offer additional opportunities for students to demonstrate a skill or overall curriculum expectation that has been missed or requires further demonstration.

Teachers will communicate with their students the expectation/schedule for those days in advance.  If your student is not asked to attend an instructional support opportunity by their teacher(s) they are not required to be at school on these days.

Transportation will run at regular times.
ACE Classes: Students in our ACE classes will continue to attend in-person on Instructional Support Days to help ensure that they have the support needed to continue their learning.
