Happy Friday Everyone!
School Re-Start on Tuesday, March 31st:
We are looking forward to re-engaging with our students and to begin the teaching and learning process again. Although it will be very different than in-person classes, and the times won’t always necessarily be the same, we encourage all students to take full advantage of teachers’ office hours and tutorial sessions in order to track with content as well as to connect with peers with whom they have not been able to check in for a while. Core classes and King Tech classes will start on March 31st, and electives will be re-launched on April 13th.
A Few Notes on CANVAS: Content will be pre-loaded in each class, and students can move at their own pace. There are deadlines for assignments, and teachers will be tracking who has completed work on time, and who has missed deadlines. In most cases, teachers will enter a zero when an assignment date has passed so that students and parents understand the overall impact on students’ grades. However, students will be able to turn in work past the posted deadline for full credit.

A Final Note:
I want to thank the staff at South High School as well as the larger South community for pulling together amidst the ongoing challenges we’re facing. Teamwork, generosity, tolerance, and genuine hard work have been the common denominator this week.
Have a good weekend!
