New for 2020-21, weekly school-sponsored Learning Pods will meet for a half-day each Wednesday (8:30 a.m. – Noon) at school and are organized in consistent small groups by grade level, led by a dedicated, trained community member.

In their Learning Pods, students will engage in hands on activities in science, art, and movement; receive support on classroom learning progress, and safely interact with their peers. They will also have time to participate in the Wednesday morning class meetings (via Chromebook).

Students enrolled in any option (Hybrid, Remote, or REACH), who are not yet committed to an independent learning group outside of school, can participate. Transportation and meals will be provided.
