All students should be signed in to their Google Classroom or Zoom and be ready to participate at 8 a.m. each day, and teachers will have live instruction schedules posted to their Google Classrooms by tomorrow morning (September 2). . The schedules will be posted on the district website.
The Mississippi Department of Education requires that students receive 330 minutes of instruction each day. Students must be logged in to each class the entire time to be marked as present.

Parents of students who do not have Internet access should contact their child’s school.
We strongly encourage all students / staff eligible for the vaccine to be vaccinated. Please let the school know if your child has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone with COVID outside of school.
