Beginning October 5th, students on the hybrid model (attending 2 days a week) will begin attending in-person classes 5 days a week Monday through Friday.
Students who wish to continue learning in a 100% virtual environment will still be able to do so. If a family would like to opt back to in-person learning, please complete the Buchanan Student Learning Option Survey. The change of options must be completed September 28th to allow time for us to prepare for additional students.
We are encouraging students that are struggling academically or having issues with virtual learning to choose the in-person learning option if possible. Click the link below.
