    December 2020 

    The holidays are upon us. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break and best wishes for a happy holiday season. Students are working hard to complete their first semester through on-line virtual learning. The schools are preparing now for the middle school students who are signed up for hybrid learning. These students will return to return to the classrooms a few hours a week, starting at the end of first semester, in late January/ February timeframe. The Superintendent and the School Board are working with school principals to create a plan for a smooth transition. The elementary school transition back to school is going well so far, with social distancing protocols in place.

    Timberwolf students and staff are working hard, adjusting to their new virtual classrooms this school year. Middle students are receiving four days a week of teacher-led instruction and one day a week of asynchronous learning (self-paced) learning during the first semester.  Students have X-Day classes (Tuesday/Thursday) and Y-Day (Wednesday/Friday) schedule, with 4X4 synchronous classes Tuesday through Friday.
