Palm Beach County School District students must make their final selection between brick-and-mortar or virtual learning for the 2020-2021 school year via the “Make Your Choice” tile in their student portals by Jan. 11.

If students are happy with their current form of learning, they do not need to do anything. If they are looking to change from brick-and-mortar to virtual learning or vice versa, they must visit the Make Your Choice tile. 

“If your child is currently attending brick and mortar instruction, and you would like to continue with that mode of instruction, no further action is necessary,” Jupiter High School’s Principal Colleen Iannitti said.

Dr. Iannitti encourages those not doing well in distance learning to consider switching to brick-and-mortar in her letter to parents. However, with COVID-19 cases on the rise, it’s still the student and parents’ choice.
