    2021-2022 School Year Scheduling-

    For 9th-11th graders you will receive information on 2/1 regarding scheduling classes for next year.  It will be very important for students to check their emails. Big Sky is exploring some schedule options for next year, more information will be communicated by early February.

    Thank you in advance for your patience as we get ready to start Semester 2 and prepare for a possible full return for all students. I have also attached a video explaining the details of the next 2 weeks. Please be in touch if you have any questions!
