Summer Lunch Program Ending on June 12
20-21 School Year Registration
Thanks for getting your children registered for the next school year and have a great summer.
20-21 School Calendar
If we start early, it would be on Wednesday, August 12 in a hybrid learning model and run through Thursday, August 20. In this model, 1/2 of our students would attend each day in person, and the other 1/2 of our students would attend virtually. They would then switch the next day as shared below:
Aug. 12- Group A in person and Group B virtually
Aug. 13- Group B in person and Group A virtually
Aug. 14- No School/Teacher PD
Aug. 17- Group A in person and Group B virtually
Aug. 18- Group B in person and Group A virtually
Aug. 19- Group A in person and Group B virtually
Aug. 20- Group B in person and Group A virtually
Aug. 21- No School/Teacher PD
Aug. 24 and until further notice- All students attend in person
The first two weeks of school would give us the opportunity to prepare for implementing this type of learning environment on a more consistent basis if it is required later in the school year. No final decision has been made, but strong consideration is being given to using this model prior to having all students attend on Monday, August 24.
It may be close to July before we are able to make a final decision on the start date and any changes that may be occurring to the 20-21 school calendar. Of course, any modifications we make are subject to further changes later in the summer and into the next school year. We realize this isn't convenient for families, but do understand we will do all that we can to notify families as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience as we work to develop a calendar that most benefits student learning.
Mental Health Support
We know and understand that these are challenging times. Everyone's lives have been altered and it is challenging for all of us. If what is being asked of students is requiring too much time, let us know and we will find ways to provide more support or make adjustments to what we are asking kids to do. We just really want to put them in the best position to be successful academically, but we ultimately want to make sure our students are healthy.
Please reach out if your kids are struggling mentally. We have a great team of counselors and they would be glad to provide support if needed.
