Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you know, Clayton Middle School/High School will follow a Phase 2- Hybrid/Cyber synchronized schedule beginning on Monday, January 25th, as discussed in the Superintendent’s announcement on January 7th. This letter is to provide information for both our Middle and High School Cyber School students who will continue to attend classes remotely.
Clayton Cyber School will now be fully synchronized with our on-site classes, ensuring that our Cyber School students receive the same daily instruction as our Hybrid students. Cyber School students will follow a 5-day a week, 8 period shortened-day schedule, signing into their individual classes using Google Meet. Class attendance will be taken by their teacher during each class. Students not signed on for the entire class will be marked absent. If your student is unable to attend school due to illness or emergencies, please follow the normal procedure for registering a student’s absence by notifying the main office of the appropriate school.
Apex Learning will no longer be utilized as the instructional platform for Clayton Cyber School. However, teachers will have the option of using Apex lesson resources as an additional resource to the Clayton curriculum, as they deem appropriate. Cyber School grades will be entered into PowerSchool. Teachers will still be available for all Cyber and Hybrid students during their enrichment hours.
Grab and Go Lunch and breakfast distribution for Cyber School students will be Monday and Thursday, from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Middle School/High School Cafeteria.
There is a slight time difference in class times for Middle and High School students, so please be sure to follow the class schedule posted by the Middle and High School Principals.
More information will be forthcoming as needed. Please continue to check our Cyber School website, which can be found under “Schools” on the District website.
Please feel free to contact me with any Cyber School questions or concerns. At times, I may be putting out information using the email currently on file, so please let me know if your email has changed.
We are aware that this has been a challenging year in many ways, and we appreciate your support as we make every effort to meet the needs of your student(s) and the Clayton community.
Cyber School Administrator
