Thursday, May 13 has been changed to an asynchronous learning day for Metro Middle and High School. That means students will work offline rather than reporting in person or logging in following their regular schedule. The change will allow students celebrating Eid to participate in classes without missing a full day of instruction. Friday, May 14 is already designated as an offline learning (all virtual) day on the school calendar, so students will work from home on both Thursday and Friday of next week. Please note that May 13 & 14 are still school days, so student participation is expected and attendance will be taken. On each day, students should check Schoology for their scheduled classes and submit assignments posted by their teachers (check for Thursday classes on Thursday and Friday classes on Friday). Assignments should be submitted by 2:30pm to be marked as present for each day.
