Feb. 28, 2021
Dear Robert Hunter families,
As we are planning another transition for this school year, please reach out with your questions, and we will always do our best to answer them and problem solve challenges together. We are trying our best every day to ensure that our children continue to have a great school year despite the challenges that this year has brought.
Classrooms may look different moving forward, as some of our classes will be taught all in person, some will be using a simulcast model, and some will be taught all remotely. No matter the format of your child’s classroom, we are committed to making the end of the year as seamless and successful as possible.
For classes that will be taught using a simulcast model, this instructional model allows all students in the class community, virtual and in-person, to learn at the same time. Please know that much effort is being put into maximizing the benefits of simulcasting.
If you submitted a request for a change from virtual to in-person or in-person to virtual instruction, we will be in contact with you soon to confirm the change. We will be reaching out to families of children who are returning to school in-person for the first time this year with more information about school procedures and expectations.
We are here to support our families in any way that we can. Do not hesitate to reach out.
Mrs. Glaab and Mrs. Braynor
