Good evening East Garner Magnet Middle School Families, this is Jimmy Sposato, the proud principal of the Trojans reaching with the Weekly Update. Monday is a B Day. The first quarter ends Thursday, October 22. We have a workday on Friday, Oct. 23. We will not have an Asynchronous Wednesday this week due to the workday on Friday.
Plan B middle school students will return to school in a 3-week rotation starting November 9. We will send out another verification of rotation assignment next week. Please let us know if you did not receive the email. Rotation 3 will be the first on campus. Students will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing at all times when on campus. We are not approving any shifts between virtual academy and Plan B at this time as staffing has been assigned based on parent requests in August. You will have an opportunity to change your preference for the 2nd semester beginning later this month. Calendar 2nd Quarter
