Special Considerations for 2020-2021
It is our sincere desire to have our students with us, in school, well protected, and receiving a high quality education. We are doing everything in our power to make this possible. We love our Goldbugs, and we miss seeing them every day!
A committee of administration, school board, teachers, staff, and parents has been meeting to develop a back-to-school plan in response to Covid-19. This plan will address topics such as cleaning/sanitization, responding to a sick student or staff member, visitors to the building, and building procedures for minimizing risk. The committee, in conjunction with teachers, is also developing 3 learning models, on-site, hybrid, and remote, for the upcoming school year.
A special edition of the school newsletter will be released as soon as these plans are finalized.
