We are busy preparing for the reopening of school. You’ve had to consider whether your child will return to school on a hybrid schedule or participate in virtual learning. The hybrid model is an A day / B day schedule. If the COVID statistics are favorable for a safe return, students will have face-to-face instruction 2 or 3 days a week. If not, students will eLearn under the direction of their teachers. Our goal is to get students back to school 5 days a week as soon as possible, and we hope the virus will subside soon so we can do that. If you want your child in the Distance Learning Academy, the all-virtual option, the deadline to enroll is today. If you need additional information, please check our district website, and give us a call if you have any questions. Cleaning equipment and supplies are arriving weekly, and we’re rearranging classrooms for social distancing. All staff will receive training on our new district cleaning protocols. Our School Board meets today to approve final reopening details including a new start date, We will share the details Friday. We will release more updates in the coming days. Please understand that all plans are subject to change as we ensure the safety of our students. Thanks for your patience, your support, and for choosing our district. We will achieve our goal….DESTINATION GRADUATION…for the class of 2021 and all those to follow!
