Good afternoon, SLLIS! We wanted to share an update on recent technical challenges. Changing class and staffing schedules can be highly disruptive, so before attempting a huge schedule change for virtual and in-school learners to improve wifi connectivity, we tried over a dozen strategies to address the technical issue. Unfortunately, these strategies made little difference in solving the problem. Next week we plan to finalize changes to Virtual Academy and In-School Learning schedules that will allow all SLLIS students to have a much improved learning experience. We will be in touch with details about these changes early next week!

We have been working diligently to resolve the issue with our internet provider. We apologize for this disruption in learning. Live teacher-led Target Language instruction is cancelled for this afternoon, Thursday, August 27. We will soon post a list of independent learning resources on our website, including resources for Target Language Practice. Teachers will also attempt to put this list of resources onto their Google Classrooms. We thank you for your patience and understanding! Please email if you have any questions.
