Tri-City United Blended Learning Days
 
On the second school day cancelled for inclement weather and for any following school cancellation day(s), Tri-City United will minimize the disruption to student learning through blended learning. Blended learning allows students and educators to extend learning past the classroom walls and supports students to transfer skills and knowledge to real life experiences.  The blended learning format also ensures that students will not be required to make up school days in the spring/summer.

On Blended Learning Days Parents/Guardians will receive an automated phone call via the JMC service and announcements will be made on the usual radio and television channels as well as posted on the district website.

The activities that students will be asked to accomplish vary depending on the grade level and the learning which might have occurred in the classroom if school were in session.
 
Grades Pk-6        Grades 7-12
