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!

Yesterday, the school board approved a flexible Hybrid Model for reopening school. This model will allow the district to make adjustments to instructional delivery based upon current health conditions. Within the hybrid model are 2 options: A/B Schedule: Students will be placed in cohorts and will receive some face to face instruction and some virtual assignments each week. This allows our district to more effectively implement social distancing and new safety protocols. eLearning: If the risk is too high for students to receive face to face instruction, learning will take place virtually until conditions improve. Parents have the option of enrolling child(ren) in a 100% virtual program for the semester or for the year. We will provide information and an application this week. The board will hold another meeting soon to decide the start date, which will be delayed from August 17th. Alternate start dates to be considered are August 24, 31 or September 8. Five LEAP days for students in 4K-8th grade will be scheduled prior to the start date. Students will report to school in small groups for orientation and assessments. The dates for LEAP will be announced after the start date is determined. view image
