How do kids catch up, if sick for multiple days in a row?

Students will need to connect with their teacher for missed homework or assignments. 

How are breaks and lunch divided?

Breaks and Lunch will be by designated entry/exit location sites. Learning groups will have designated outdoor break locations (on school grounds).
