News and updates for families of Inspire students

July 24, 2020

Dear Inspire Families:

Yesterday, Mary Sakuma, Superintendent of Butte County Office of Education, released a joint statement with Butte County Public Health announcing the following: "Butte County was placed on the State's Monitoring List on July 22 due to a COVID-19 case rate above 100 per 100,000 residents over a 14-day period...Until Butte County is off the State Monitoring List for 14 consecutive days, all Butte County schools may only provide distance learning."

This means that, like all Butte County Schools, Inspire will not be allowed to reopen in person. We will transition to a distance learning model and students will be learning at home and receiving instruction from Inspire teachers via Schoology.

We know that many students and parents will be disappointed by these changes. We know that teachers were looking forward to seeing their beloved students, and are sad to know that they will not go back to their classrooms to teach in-person. We also know that the safety of our community is foremost, and that we are a nimble and flexible organization with an amazing staff. We will do all we can to create deep and lasting learning experiences for your children, and will provide the support necessary to keep them engaged in school.

We will offer a Parent Information Meeting on Wednesday, July 29 at 6 p.m. (see details below) to dive a bit deeper into our transition plan details. For those who cannot attend, I will follow up next week with more information and a link to the recording of the meeting.

Please know how much we appreciate the words of kindness, the honest reflections and feedback, the resources and information, as well as the shared sense of hope you have offered us in these last few weeks and months.

With deep appreciation for your partnership,

Becky Brown
