    Clubs and Supervision:

    There are normally two types of clubs which are distinguished by supervisory aspects (see below). During remote learning during the 2020-21 school year, ALL clubs were deemed "partially supervised". With in-person learning for all students resuming in September, some clubs may again meet the criteria for "fully supervised" clubs. Once this information is established and confirmed, the supervisory status of each club will be indicated on the above clubs Google document AND there will be corresponding Family ID sign up links (one for "fully supervised clubs" and one for "partially supervised clubs") on the same document. ALL students who join clubs need to sign up on Family ID each school year (exceptions: Speech & Debate and Gender & Sexuality Awareness).
