    Well, we are certainly living in a chaotic world right now.  Life is changing by the day, if not by the hour right now.  Just crazy.  So, with that in mind, I would like to highlight a few vital items from the high school perspective.

    We are all learning a new term--Social Distancing.  Please adhere to this as much as possible.  It is done for a reason.  Use some common sense.  For those of us at the school, we are limiting our interactions as much as possible.  With that in mind, please follow the protocols that have been set up by the district as far as picking up homework packets, chromebooks, instruments, etc. 

    Teachers have been working diligently this week to get much of their curriculum online.  Most teachers have opened Google Classrooms (if they had not previously done so).  So as a student, please check your school emails regularly for classroom 'invites' and also general information from your teachers.  During the week of March 23-27, teachers will be in their classrooms and available via phone or email from 8AM to noon.  Please do not come to the school expecting to see a teacher and receive help.  That will not happen.   

    Also, as a reminder, teachers will still be utilizing the ICU program for assignments that are not being turned in.  So, parents, you will still receive contact from the school if your student is not getting something turned in.  

    I strongly encourage you to check your emails regulary for updates from the district.  Having good communication during this closure will be crucial.  

    And just like everyone else, we are in a 'holding pattern' to see what next week will bring.  Obviously, we are hoping for the best and being able to finish out the year as we had planned.  

    If at any point, you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the building offices or the administration office.   

    All parents and students have been very understanding and patient during this time.  Thank You for your continued support.  We will persevere!

    Sincerely,

    K.J. Poepping, Principal
