Dancers –

We are starting our first full week of school and I am looking forward to seeing all classes this week! As you know, we are now in a hybrid mode and have the studios set up for a small number of face-to-face students to dance in the studios. Below are some basic reminders for classes as we get back into a regular schedule.

We are on a regular bell schedule this week (same as last Thursday/Friday, just no Homeroom).

1st period – 8:20 am – 9:51 am

2nd period – 10:01 am- 11:30 am

3rd period – 11:40 am – 1:25 pm (all PA classes have “D” Lunch)

4th period – 2:02 pm – 3:31 pm

Virtual Students – Please log onto CTLS as soon as you can and email us if you have any technology issues. Once we get up and start dancing we might not get your email in time. Remember that you need to have your camera on when the class starts with your face showing, and when you are dancing your full body needs to be visible in camera.

Face-to-face Students – We have set up your seating charts, just be mindful you will be getting yours for your other class (Ballet/Jazz) on Monday 1/11/21. You also need to come to school dressed out in your dance clothes. The bathrooms/dressing room area is limited to bathroom use, we need to maintain as much distance as possible.

SIGNED CONTRACTS ARE DUE FRIDAY 1/15/21! Please submit screenshots to my CTLS page in the assignments section by 4pm this Friday.
