Wednesday Rotations

To provide an extra live session with a teacher once a month, the Blue and Gold Groups will do a weekly rotation on Wednesdays, rotating between live check-ins with teachers (via Google Meet) and scheduled virtual activities for attendance (via Google Classroom). Check your school email for Wednesday meeting invitations when it is your group’s turn for live check-ins.

The Wednesday rotation begins the week of 9/21 as follows:

  • Week 1 (9/23): Tuesday Blue students live check-ins, all others virtual for attendance
  • Week 2 (9/30): Thursday Gold students live check-ins, all others virtual for attendance

Students should check their school email for meeting invitations from their teachers.

If you have questions, contact the Main Office at 518-828-4360 (ext. 8100) or the Guidance Office (ext. 8308).

Other Expectations

Students must follow our Code of Conduct and act appropriately at all times (e.g., appropriate language must be used, be respectful). If you are removed from a remote class for negative behavioral choices, it is your responsibility to follow up with your teacher. Learn about being a responsible digital citizen.

Students (and family members) should try to limit outside distractions during lessons (such as television, music, loud talking, etc.).
