The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

9th-11th grade STEM Academy students were treated to a guest speaker last week. Olivier Brousse with 3d Vista took the time out of his busy schedule to teach our students about drones. He taught them about what components are necessary, what sensors are present and how they work, how Newton's 3rd law applies to their flight, and different applications of drones (search and rescue, aerial imaging, structural analysis, etc.). Students were excited for the opportunity to learn about this cutting-edge technology!
After Dr. Brousse took the time to teach the students the basic concepts, he then treated them to a display outside. He flew a drone and had it take a class selfie! (Unfortunately, due to high winds on the second day of the presentation, Dr. Brousse was unable to fly a drone. However, students were able to observe responsible behavior around drone safety!)
Students were very happy to have this opportunity at Skyline. Several students stayed after school to ask Dr. Brousse further information about drones and extend their learning.
