We will share specific information with you no later than Monday, March 16 about which classes will be online and which classes will be kept in their original in-person format. All SSD (DSPS) students will be contacted separately with information on accommodations.

We understand that some of you have concerns about the change to online classes.  We will provide you with all of the assistance you need to make a successful transition.

I want to express my appreciation for all those who are working diligently on this transition in these challenging times.  If you are having any difficulty accessing the class materials or maintaining enrollment as a result of the coronavirus, we want to know!  We are available to work through your specific concerns.  We will also continue to regularly communicate with you so please check for messages. Nothing is more important to us than your health and safety and your educational success.

Thank you.
