2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR


Our campuses are all abuzz with excitement as we are now teaching our hybrid learners in all grade levels. We'll have some new students returning to the campus with the start of the second semester on Monday, January 25, 2021. We've been communicating directly with these families, but want to remind you that you can find all the information you need about the hybrid learning model here on our website.

Each school has its own section dedicated to this new year, with links in the list on the left, where you will find more grade specific information. In addition, we are continually updating our COVID Info page as well as our COVID FAQ page. More information about our Phase-In plan and dates can be found on our 2020-2021 Phase-In Plan page.

If you have received a hybrid assignment notice for your student and would like to choose our online only learning model, you can do so by emailing Dr. Baldwin, Blaine Elementary School Principal. 


The Friday menu in your child's Google Classroom provides you with a plethora of options for Friday activities. Since your student has been on screens most of the week, our goal with the Friday menu is to provide a combination of online learning activities, which are done on the computer, and offline activities, which do not require the use of the computer. Our hope in this is to meet the various needs of our individual families. You can choose to engage in either type of activity, whatever suits your family best! There have also been several questions about whether or not you can veer from the menu and do some other activities. Just work with your child’s teacher around this and we can certainly make a plan!
