Middle and high schools temporarily moving to remote learning days | Español | Русский | Fóósun Chuuk

It is necessary to implement a temporary schedule in which some of our schools will switch to four days of remote learning over the next three weeks.

On in-person days, shuttle buses for Vancouver Flex Academy, Vancouver iTech Preparatory or Vancouver School of Arts and Academics will continue from your neighborhood middle school. Shuttles for other magnet and career-technical education programs will continue from your neighborhood high school.
