Dear A-TECH Students and Parents,
I am excited to announce that our bell schedule has been approved by CCSD for release. Please review all the information below and continue to stay tuned as virtual A-TECH takes shape.
Bell Schedule Approved
A-TECH will be on an A/B/C rotation with online live instruction starting at 9:00 am Monday – Friday. Students will have four live courses each A (odd) and B (even) Day. On C Day, students will have all 8 courses but there is flexibility based on teacher and student needs. In addition, teachers will have extensive Office Hours to support students and advise student activities. We will be having a required Google Meets Welcome Orientation for all students during Office Hours on Monday, August 24 at 8:00 am. More information will be coming soon.
I have attached three different documents for your reference:
A-TECH Student Instructional Guide (detailed description of the daily bell schedule)
A-TECH Student Bell Schedule 2020-21 (simplified daily bell schedule)
A-TECH Calendar Rotation 2020-21 (A/B/C rotation by day)
Important Items to Note:
The bell schedule will be adjusted when we return to in-person school.
Teachers will be recording and posting live lessons for review later in the day. It is highly recommended that students plan to be virtually present on Google Meets at the assigned time.
Attendance policies are still being determined by the Nevada Department of Education and CCSD.

Important Items to Note:
Last year’s textbooks must be turned in when you enter the gym, or you will not be allowed to collect your new textbooks. Textbooks from last year have been removed from all lockers and classrooms.
You should park in the Student Parking Lot and walk through the double gate to the gym in the back of school.
Chromebooks – We still have Chromebooks available, but parents must complete the Online Registration Process (directions attached) and sign the CCSD Mobile Device Agreement 2020 (attached) before we can release a Chromebook to a student. You do not need an A-TECH Chromebook if you have another Internet-enabled device with a microphone and video camera.Only A-TECH students will be allowed into the gym (no parents/siblings). Masks and social distancing will be required.
If a student answers “yes” to any of these questions, they will need to stay home and arrange for a separate pick-up day with Mr. Rispin (email@example.com):
Do you have a new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
Do you have new shortness of breath that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
Do you have any two of the following symptoms: fever (100.4⁰ F or higher), chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell?
Have you come into close contact (within 6 feet) with someone who has a laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days?
Have you received a laboratory-confirmed positive COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days?
