The Beak Summer 2020
Welcome to the fall semester of 2020! We are looking forward to serving our students and families together again with a hybrid of in-person and remote learning. We are grateful to our staff and families for maintaining a positive attitude as we explore these new forms of teaching and learning.
Please remember to ensure all students are wearing a mask before entering the building and please ensure students are symptom free before bringing them to school. Students will be greeted in the east side parking lot for a temperature check and symptom screening.
Our orientation week starts on Monday, August 24. Only students will be allowed to enter the building and go to the theatre area. We will distribute the class schedules, chromebooks, textbooks and novels. A tutorial will be provided to ensure students understand how to access the platforms we will be using this fall.
The schedule for orientation week is as follows:
August 24: Seniors with last name beginning with letters A-M will come in from 9:00-10:15 and names N-Z from 10:30-11:45.
August 25: Juniors with names A-M 9:00-10:15 and names N-Z from 10:30-11:45 .

We have increased water stations around the building to ensure healthy hydration practices!!
We would like to extend an appreciative thank you to Weisburg Landscape Maintenance for their work on our property this summer. Joe and Eric Moroski volunteered their professional services to ensure our front yard was ready for the return of our students to school.
