Families of Students on Quarantine
When students have to quarantine, our goal is that students stay engaged and stay caught up in their academic work (homework assignments). Below is what will take place if your student(s) has to quarantine.
Students on Quarantine:

  • Parent/Guardian and student will receive an email from the middle school office. Recipients include student/parent and teachers.
  • Students email their teachers and log into Canvas for homework assignments.
  • Students email their teachers if you have any questions about homework assignments.

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) please check in with your student daily on what assignments were completed throughout the day. If you have any questions about academic assignments, please contact your student’s teachers.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
