7:15 p.m. Classes Begin, Log Into Student Teams Account

Students, for this section of the evening, log into your Microsoft Teams accounts along with parents/guardians to attend each class via your calendar or teacher invitation. This is the same process you used to attend classes remotely.

Study Hall + Counselor Update: Although counselors will be available to meet via Teams during study halls, it is likely that the allotted 10 minutes may not be enough time for a complete meeting nor allow for more than one family meeting per study hall. If you would like to arrange time with your son's counselor and tonight's study hall time frame does not suffice, we recommend you send an email to schedule a separate meeting. Emails and counselor assignments are provided below.
