2020-2021 ATTENDANCE UPDATE:
Mondays: Asynchronous learning for all high school students. Attendance will NOT be taken.
Tuesday-Friday: Hybrid (in-person and virtual) synchronous learning for all high school students. Attendance WILL be taken for both virtual and in-person students.
Families should continue to communicate with Neighborhood Administrative Assistants to provide a board approved reason if their student will not be attending virtual or in-person instruction. Students who are unable to attend in-person instruction may participate in virtual instruction and can be marked present if they do.
If a student who has opted for in-person learning is being reported absent because they are experiencing symptoms, have been identified as a close contact, or have tested positive for COVID, the COVID screener (emailed to the student each morning) should be filled out.
If a student is having technical difficulty accessing their class’s zoom link or Google classroom on any given day, they will want to email that class’s teacher as soon as possible. Technology troubleshooting resources can be found at east.mmsd.org/tech.
