Dear Parents and Students of the Junior High,

We have found ourselves in interesting times.  We know that God is in control and He will be with us in and through these challenging times.   After careful consideration, our school has decided to follow recommended protocol regarding the Coronavirus.  However, we will not be totally shut down.  At this point students will not be attending school but will be receiving on-line instruction from 3/18/20 until 3/27/20.  The school will continue to review the ever-evolving situation regarding Coronavirus protocol and plan for the operation of school beyond March 27th.  Here is some critical information:

All events, trips and athletic events (including practice) are cancelled until at least 3/27/20, but we will make decisions regarding events scheduled after the 27th at a later date.

Office Hours

8am – 2pm Monday – Friday

Gate code is temporarily disabled.  Contact the office if you need to retrieve something from the school.

Teachers will send an email on Tuesday afternoon, March 17th with specific instructions regarding their online classes.  In order to not overwhelm our students with work, our classes will follow an alternating schedule. Each class session is designed to provide instruction for 1.5 to 2 hours of work/lecture/reading.   For example:

  • On 3/18/20 students will receive instruction in two classes, ELA and Science.  The total time of instruction will be about 1.5-2 hours/class.  All assignments given that day will be due the following day, 3/19/20, by 9:00 am.
  • On 3/19/20 students will receive instruction in two classes, Social Studies and Math.   The total time of instruction will be about 1.5-2 hours/class.  All assignments given that day will be due the following day, 3/20/20, by 9:00 am.
