Please complete a questionnaire to let us know your current plan for which school your child will attend when the second semester begins January 19.
As we plan for the second semester of this school year, it is important to have an estimate of how many students plan to remain in the STPPS Virtual School
and how many students will return to their physical school in his/her attendance zone.

Parents,
In an effort to streamline communication and provide you with important information, starting Monday, November 16th for those courses offered through Edgenuity, we will begin using the communication system within the Edgenuity platform.  You and your student will now use this method to communicate directly with teachers.  Once logged in to your student’s account, access messaging by clicking on the envelope icon in the upper right corner of the screen.  Please check your child’s classes in Edgenuity for messages. For those courses not offered through Edgenuity, communication will continue in the current manner.

Thank you for your support as we continue to find methods to enhance communication between our teachers and students.
