Spring Lake Park Schools Families,

Over the last 10 days, we transitioned students in grades 7-12 back to a Modified Campus (hybrid) model. We also engaged staff in designing toward what we hope is a final transition for the 2020-2021 school year. As we return from Spring Break on Tuesday, March 23, students in grades 7-12 in the Modified Campus (hybrid) model will transition to five days per week of learning at school.

Our teams are creatively addressing how to transition students back to learning at school five days a week and support the required planning time for teachers outlined in the state’s Safe Learning Plan. Next week, families of students in grades 7-12 should watch their school communication for more building-specific information for both at-school and at-home learners. Principal Matthew Boucher at the high school, Principal Tom Larson at the middle school and Kevin Berdine at Lighthouse will share any information you may need before trimester 3 begins.

Vaccinations are a key factor in providing seamless, in-person services for our students. Staffing has been one of our greatest challenges this year. Over the last week, we were able to secure first doses of COVID-19 vaccine for nearly all of our staff. This is exciting – not only for personal health as we transition to more in-person services but for learning continuity.

As our Spring Break begins on March 12, we mark a year of pandemic life in our schools. The good news of this week brings us hope for the final months of this unusual school year and what we hope is one final transition for students and families. Thank you for your continued support.

Jeff Ronneberg, Ed. D.
