Daily Notices - Week of October 26


New schedule and week at a glance

With the launch of our new hybrid schedule, we are no longer using red and white week designations. This new schedule will be the same each week. 

This week, however, is a bit different because of SAT and PSAT tests being offered Tuesday and Thursday. Here’s a quick reminder of how this week will go. 

  • Monday, October 26 – All Cohort A students will be on campus
  • Tuesday, October 27 – Only 12th graders participating in the SAT will be on campus. All other students will participate in remote learning on a half-day schedule
  • Wednesday, October 28 – This will be a ‘normal’ remote learning day for all students
  • Thursday, October 29 – Only 11th graders participating in the PSAT will be on campus. All other students will participate in remote learning on a full-day schedule
  • Friday, October 30 – All Cohort B students will be on campus

The results are in!
