On the attached calendar is the Blue/White schedule for all students throughout the month of November.
Students will NOT need to log on for homeroom or study hall. Please help students manage their time efficiently from 12 pm – 2 pm for school related work. Students should take a lunch break and then use the remaining time to complete reinforcement activities from the day, ongoing projects, and/or homework. Work needs to be completed and submitted on time for each class. Student attendance will be taken for each class.
Teachers will be available from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm to assist students who have school work questions. Please have them email their teacher directly for assistance.
If your student needs a reliable device to access virtual learning, please contact the school ASAP so we can get a device signed out on Thursday or Friday this week.
If you would like to receive a school breakfast and/or lunch for your student(s), please email Karyn Demmons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the switch from in-person to remote learning, students will have more time with their teachers receiving instruction and participating in whole class and/or small group discussions and/or activities.
With the current information, the Calais School Department plans to reopen to in-person learning on Monday, November 30, 2020.
