πŸ–πŸ½ Queens, Before you head out for break, let us spoil you one more day with hot topics, games, and prizes. Tomorrow, log on to hear the latest job hirings, how to get a job & make money during the pandemic, how to get scholarships starting Jan. 1, and how to start transitioning to your collegiate or workforce development career in 2021. While minimum wage is going up to $11 an hour in 2021, we want you to set goals to soar higher than that. Poppy & Tabatha learned 2 weeks ago that they needed more than minimum wage when we did our financial planning workshop.

Good morning. I hope everyone had a great holiday and stayed safe in the process. We are back at it this morning for remote learning. Please remember to check in on my Google Classroom for the attendance component. Then, follow up with your classroom teachers to complete the daily assignments. We are 15 short school days away from the end of the quarter. Let's finish strong and take that next step towards graduation.

In light of the news release from the Macon County Health Department urging schools and churches to move to remote or virtual learning, we will be pushing up our Remote Learning date to tomorrow, Wednesday, November 18th. Students will be on Remote Learning for the remainder of the second quarter. We anticipate a delayed start to the 3rd quarter. It is currently set for January 15th, but we will follow the recommendations before proceeding. Please make sure you continue to look for updates on our school status. Let's work hard and stay safe over the holidays in order to return to in-person education next quarter. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Good afternoon. We are going to utilize a Remote Learning day on Wednesday, August 26th. This day is not marked on your calendar and similar days may pop up sporadically. Teachers have began to explain the expectations and will do so tomorrow, as well. This will be our first attempt at Remote Learning since introducing Google Classroom and is intended to be a trial run to work out any kinks in the system. There will be no in-person instruction for AM or PM students. However, staff and faculty will have regular school day hours. Thank you.
