Instead, they will be expected to login to their classes on the two hour delay schedule. Teachers will provide lessons and students will be given instruction during remote status. Teachers have updated their schoology pages with assignments in case of inclement weather and the need for remote instruction. The two hour delay schedule: 1st Block 10:28-11:23 2nd Block 11:25-12:20 Lunch 12:20- 1:20 3rd Block 1:24-2:24 4th Block 2:26-3:25
