  • Incoming 9th Grade Health Orientation

    Students enrolled in the Incoming 9th Grade Health course will have an in-person orientation on June 7. There are two sessions of the orientation and families have received an email communication indicating when the student should attend.  

    Students will be expected to follow safety protocol by wearing a mask, maintaining physical distancing and washing hands. 

    During the time the student is in the building for the one day orientation, they will pick up their Chromebook, will meet their teacher, will be provided with details about the course and teacher availability, and will begin their coursework. Teachers will also answer any questions the students may have and help them organize their pacing of assignment completion so that they have a solid understanding of their timelines. 

    Transportation will not be provided, so please plan accordingly. Students should be dropped off and picked up in the south parking lot.
