Remote Learning

 
Sandia Prep is known for its strong sense of community. Now, more than ever, we are here to support our students, families, and community. Though the delivery may be different, our goal remains the same: To teach students how to think creatively and critically while learning who they are and who they want to become. Thank you to our faculty, staff, students, and families for their flexibility in this unprecedented situation. 
 
Below you will find helpful tools as we start a new method of teaching and learning. We hope you will keep an open mind and have fun with this new way of conducting classes.

Please note that each teacher will contact their students with specific instructions and plans for each class.
 
 
 

The remote learning schedule is an A and B Day block. Students will attend their first four classes on A Days (Periods 1 - 4) and second four classes on B Days (Periods 5 - 8). Advisory will meet at 1:00 p.m on the first day of remote classes (March 23) and then at 1:00 p.m. each Friday.
