Students Return to In-Person Learning

Last week we were excited to welcome our kindergarten and first grade students to onsite Core classes. We have now surveyed all families, grades K-12 to find out which students want to come onsite for in-person instruction from their teachers for all grades. Below you will find the schedules for K-4 Core classes. After the school district has established guidelines for grades 6-12, we will begin scheduling grades 5-12 for onsite classes as well. Because our PREP classes are multi-grade 5/6, we will schedule those grades together for an onsite schedule.

The days and times for grades K – 4 are listed below. The length of time a student stays onsite depends on if the student is taking one, or both, Core ELA and Math classes for that grade. The inclusive times below would be for students taking both ELA and Math Core classes. You will be notified of your child’s exact cohort group and schedule soon.

Kindergarten – Mondays, beginning February 22, 9:00 – 11:30

Remote Plus - Mondays, beginning February 22, 9:30 – 11:00

1st Grade – Thursdays, beginning February 25, 8:45 – 11:40

2nd Grade – Thursdays, beginning March 11, 8:45 – 11:40

3rd & 4th Grades – Thursdays, beginning March 18, 8:30 – 11:20

Class Schedule for the 21-22 School Year

In a typical year, SA posts the class schedule in the spring for your review and for scheduling into fall classes. This has been far from a typical year, with still an abundance of unknowns. What we have learned from our recent surveys is that there is a strong interest for students to again be onsite for in-person learning. We also know that it is still very possible to likely, that some modifications to the usual will be necessary for the start of the 2021-22 school year.

We have decided to postpone our announcement of the fall schedule until later in the summer, with onsite class registration scheduled for some time in August. For PREP and AC students, this is less of “what classes will I be taking” because those are mostly set, but as to which days of the week and times will be decided in August. The unknowns affect our LC students more because the electives vary more year-to-year. We extend our apologies to our families in advance, but we believe that this will be less disruptive and confusing for everyone if we wait until it gets closer to the fall and the situation with COVID is clearer.

For families enrolling in LC remote classes, you will still be able to set-up those classes with your advisor before the end of this school year. In this instance, remote classes refer to those courses set-up on student learning plans where the SA teacher meets with the parent and student once a month, and not those remote classes that have weekly Zoom sessions with a SA teacher providing direction instruction.

What we do know from our most recent survey is that there is a very strong interest for in-person learning to resume. We will build a schedule that maximizes in-person learning as much as our space, staffing, and health/safety guidelines will permit.
