Reopening Plans

The goal is to have all students return for face to face instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. Everyone back is where we want to be but we recognize that we will have to comply with and follow the direction from our governing bodies such as the Missoula County Health Department. There is the possibility that out plans will change over the next few weeks.

All Students in attendance

 • Follow the established bell schedule (4 class periods per day) with the cancellation of the M-8 (all period) day on Mondays to limit contacts and transitions. So A/B rotation 4 periods per day.
