Veterinary Assistant students to return to class starting August 31st!

When D301 returns to school on August 31, 2020, so will Veterinary Assistant students from across the region!  As we work through the challenges of the pandemic the school year is going to look a little different as students return to school.  D301 will be utilizing a hybrid schedule to ensure students are social distancing while still receiving a quality educational experience.  Students in D301 and U46 choosing the in person hybrid schedule will be split based on the first letter of their last name.  Students with last names starting with A-K will attend in person class on Mondays and Thursdays.  Students with last names starting with L-Z will attend in person class on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays will be remote learning for all students.  On the days that students are not scheduled in person they will be required to log into their Canvas accounts during their scheduled class time.  Our D300 students should have received your class schedule from Mrs. Sharp as to the days that you will attend class.  Students that have chosen to complete class remotely this semester should log into their Canvas accounts at their normally scheduled class time.  Class times are as follows:
Introduction to Agriculture – 7:30 – 8:10 am on Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday  and 7:30 -7:50 am on Wednesday
