Return to Learn: Blended Experience

Below is a link to the infographic that was sent out this week explaining our return to learn plan for student re-entry. It begins with a bridge model of afternoon instruction in-person. It will be assumed you are returning unless you complete the google form in the link below. There is a video explaining what this will look like for each grade level as we stagger entry during the second quarter and what the experience will look like for second semester (Jan-end of year). If you are planning to return to in-person instruction, you do not need to do anything. Please contact Mrs. Righter (melissa.righter@sd129.org) or me, Ms. Dvorak (cdvorak@sd129.org) with any questions you have. Your decision should be made by this Sunday, October 11th. https://resources.finalsite.net/images/v1601932920/sd129org/ydljveuaospdwbwm8zqz/InPerson_Infographic_ELEMALL.pdf
