Flexible Independent Learning

In order to make sure families are able to balance the challenges of Distance Learning, daily suggested schedules ensure that students can complete all independent work in their own time. Students will be held accountable for the completion of these core assignments, and we will provide recommendations of how the work should be sequenced to maximize learning, but families will have the flexibility to structure this time in whatever way works best for them.
