All students should have either traded in their previously-issued district Chromebooks or picked up the new one yesterday or today. If you have a remote student and were unable to come, please contact us to arrange for an exchange/pick up. The “old” devices are being passed down to grade school students, so we do need them back. Additionally, students will need the new devices for testing. Students will use the same Google username and password as they have been using. The password for Infinite Campus also remains the same. If you or your student needs any assistance with Chromebooks or passwords, please contact

Snack Break

Hybrid students will have a short snack break during their scheduled lunch period in the cafeteria. To ensure social distancing and proper safety protocols, students will be divided by team. Healthy, dry snacks are encouraged. Free meals will continue to be available to all students and are distributed once a week.

Incoming Freshmen Course Selection

The completed green course selection form must be returned by mail or dropped off at Sycamore Middle School by Friday, February 5 to ensure students are enrolled in the high school classes that they requested. If you missed the video presentation, it is still available on the web page linked below. If you have any questions, please contact us.
