High School Return to In-Person Instruction Information and FAQ

We are excited to share information about our return to in-person instruction plans.  Below is a link to a website with as much information as we currently have.  If there are additional questions, please feel free to contact us!

High School Return to In-Person Instruction Information and FAQ

The following two questions have been added to the FAQ:

Q: What is happening with “hands-on” courses for students enrolled in the Sherwood Cloud Campus?

A: Students enrolled in the Cloud Campus may find that meaningful participation in some of our hands-on courses is significantly challenging. 

We strongly encourage students who are enrolled in the Cloud Campus and have these courses in their Q4 schedule to talk with their counselor about whether other elective offerings might be a better fit this Spring. 

Cloud campus students who were enrolled in these courses and choose to postpone taking them will have priority for registration for 2021-22.

These Elective Courses are:

  • Advanced Wood Projects
  • Ceramics 1
  • Ceramics 2
  • Engineering 2
  • Engineering 4
  • Furniture & Cabinetry
  • Graphic Design
  • Interior Design
  • Jewelry Making
  • Metal Fabrication 
  • Small Engine Repair
  • Textiles
  • Welding 1
  • Welding 2
  • Woods 1

Q: What will PE look like in a hybrid instructional model?

A: Locker rooms will not be available for student use during hybrid. Students participating in PE classes should plan to come to class wearing clothes appropriate for athletic activities, and expect to remain in those clothes for the rest of the day. Students are encouraged to bring a towel to wipe off with.

  • Emily Klapp
