IV Online Learning Flyby - September 11

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

IV Eagle Flyby – Friday. September 11, 2020

Smiling faces behind the masks were evident as students and teachers returned to classes in the current hybrid schedule. Devices were distributed and we worked through the login and password challenges getting connected to Schoology, ClassLink, and Microsoft teams. All-in-all a smooth transition returning to school in-person and with the SAOA.

Looking forward through the eye of the eagle....
