Online Learning Modified Traditional
All students will be assigned a Middle School schedule that will be followed virtually throughout the day.

The curriculum will be the same as what is being taught in the Modified Traditional Mode and will be at the same pace.

Students will be required to participate four days per week (M, T, Th, F) at the same time as the Modified Traditional instruction is being taught for all core classes and Related Arts.

Students will be assigned independent work to complete on Wednesdays. These assignments are required and will be used for collecting attendance.

Students may need to pick up supplies from the Middle School for coursework or engage in an alternate activity depending upon the project, course, or assignment.

In general, some support may be needed from parents/guardians to assist students with logging on and completing assignments.

On Wednesday mornings, there will be virtual office hours available for all students. Office hours may be required for students, conditional of the individual student’s progress.

Students will have daily opportunities to interact through technology with their teacher and classmates who are participating in the Modified Traditional Mode.

Grab-and-Go meals will be available for pick-up one day a week under the regular school-year meal program.
