Due to recently higher community transmission rates, orientation will be held virtually this year. Like last year, teacher orientation videos will be posted for family viewing on the school district website by 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1. This will give students and families an opportunity to learn more about their teacher(s), course content, class expectations, and more.
