Important Informationโ€ผPlease Readโ€ผ

๐Ÿ“Œ Hybrid scholars WILL NOT return to the building on Monday, December 8th as previously mentioned. All scholars will remain completely virtual until further notice.

๐Ÿ“Œ Classes will continue to convene at 8:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. every Monday through Friday. Please make sure that your scholars are up and logging on for class every day. Their attendance matters!

๐Ÿ“Œ If you have not returned the school-issued iPad, please stop by the school TODAY to return it AND pick up your scholar's new laptop. Some parents have stated that their scholars want to keep the iPad versus getting the laptop. This IS NOT an option! QCSD has graciously ordered laptops for every single scholar in the district at no cost to the parents. That's right! You do not have to pay a fee for the laptops. Please come and pick up your scholar's device as soon as possible.

๐Ÿ“Œ DO NOT remove the laptops from their protective cases or remove any of the fixed assets stickers as this will void the warranty.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
