Return to Learning Information

Return to Learn Slides LINK

Scroll down for info about bus routes, the bell schedule, drop off and dismissal, and parking.

If you are receiving this message, your child is signed-up to be an in-person learner beginning Monday, March 1st for 9th graders and Monday, March 8th for ALL students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.

  • To prepare your student, please review our guide for in-person learners document for information about what school will be like for students attending in-person.
  • If your child has a teacher who will be teaching from home, your child will attend class in a supervised environment on campus.
  • While we are very excited for our students to be in-person, I have heard from a number of families who would like the opportunity for their child to remain virtual for the remainder of the year instead of returning to in-person.  I want to make sure that you all know that you can make a change for your child to remain virtual for the remainder of the year, even if you signed them up for in-person in November. If this is the case for your family, please call our main office at 527-4600 or email your counselor.  Their contact information can be found here
  • As a reminder, if you would like for your child to remain virtual for the majority of his or her classes but be in-person for the ACE center or marching band, we can allow this.  Students who are only attending their ACE program will attend 1st period at Tucker each morning as transportation will arrive at the end of first period to take them to their centers. And, your child can also participate in athletics and in-person school activities if he or she remains virtual.
  • Before your child can return to school, there are two forms related to Covid-19 health and safety that we will need for you to sign.
  1. COVID-19 Health Screening Acknowledgement Form for Students (2 pages). This form acknowledges that every student will go through the screening questions every day before coming to campus. If students answer that they have any of the scenarios or symptoms listed, they should not come to school and the school should be notified. (Please call the Attendance Office at 527-4600 and press “1.”)
  2. COVID-19 Addendum to the Health and Safety Parent/Student Acknowledgement Form

Please log into the PowerSchool Parent Portal and select the menu “Access Online Forms” located on the left.  Once in the forms portal, you will see instructions on how to locate and complete these forms online.  If you do not have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you can access this page for more information on setting up an account or contact me so that I can assist you. Instructions are available in Spanish and Arabic.

  • We will provide two masks for each student who is attending for in-person learning.
  • Students will need to bring headphones to school with them every day for in-person learning.  In some cases, depending on the situation with the teacher and their in-person class size, students may be accessing their teachers’ instruction virtually while they are in-person.  So, having headphones will be an important part of their ability to access instruction.
  • Further information about the specifics for pick-up/drop off will be shared prior to our return.
