Elementary, go to your google classroom for zoom links and supply lists. Grades 6-12: Online students - go to your advisory google classroom for the Zoom link. You will need an empty disposable water bottle (it can be any kind as long as it is clear), dish soap, soil and water. In-person students - bring a disposable clear water bottle to school for the soil sample workshop, and dress in layers. The morning workshops will take place outside.

Hello SODA Families, We would like to inform everyone that if any one person in a vehicle has a fever when trying to come onto campus, then all persons in the vehicle must leave campus until they are cleared by the school nurse to come onto campus. Students in the vehicle will then have to participate online until they are cleared by the nurse to return to in person classes. As we try to keep everyone safe, healthy and in school, we ask for your cooperation in this matter. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions or concerns regarding this process contact the school nurse.
PTC MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT! Also, Thank you PTC for purchasing cases of bottled water for each classroom!

Do not share your devices with another student. Please also review the parent guide for in person learning. We kindly ask you to remind your child to wear their mask, talk with them about personal space and keep them home if they are not feeling well. Students who stay home, due to not feeling well, may still log into their class virtually and not be counted absent.
