Reimagining Education| Choose virtual or on-campus student instruction

A choice form will need to be completed for each student. The form asks for the parents/guardians name and contact information, preferred household language, student’s name, campus, incoming grade level, and student ID. After that, select if the student will continue virtual learning or switch to on-campus instruction once schools re-open, and if the student needs support with technology. Help us support all families by only requesting a device if your household does not have an adequate supply. The election for your student(s) to continue virtual learning or return to the classroom once our school doors open again is TIME SENSITIVE.
