At home learning supports

We have had several inquiries from families asking for full time at home learning because they are choosing not to send their children to school. It is important to note that See Saw and Google classroom are in place to support in-person learning. Students are expected to come to school unless they are ill or are required to self-isolate. See Saw and Google Classroom are not for full time at home learning. Families wishing to have their children learning from home need to register with e-school, e-school will not be taking new student registrations until January 25.
