Changes to Return to Learn Plan: November 19, 2020
CHANGES TO RETURN TO LEARN PLAN
Our Board of Education met last night and one of the discussion items regarded possible modifications to our Return to Learn Plan instructional model, as a result of the changing COVID-19 situation within our community and schools. Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in our community and schools, staffing concerns in our schools, and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the following decisions were made:
All grades/schools will transition to remote learning on Monday and Tuesday of next week (November 23rd & 24th) as well as Monday and Tuesday the following week (November 30th and December 1st), following our Thanksgiving Break.
9th-12th grades will continue with remote learning through December 4th with further evaluation to occur prior to the 4th and decisions communicated to our families at a later date regarding the learning model after the 4th.
6th-8th grades will transition to remote learning starting Monday, November 23rd and will continue through Friday, December 4th with further evaluation to occur prior to the 4th and decisions communicated to our families at a later date regarding the learning model after the 4th.
PreK-5th grades will pivot to remote learning on Monday and Tuesday of next week (November 23rd & 24th) and the following Monday and Tuesday (November 30th and December 1st). A decision will be made by Tuesday of next week regarding the learning model for our PreK-5 classrooms after December 1st.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide ongoing communication throughout this time. The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority and we recognize that the uncertainty that COVID-19 presents each of us is challenging. These decisions are never easy and we understand can bring extra burden to our families. Please know we work to make decisions in the best interest of our students and staff.
You can see in our data below that all of our buildings have over 15% of our students quarantined and 3 of them are over 20%. We said that we would monitor our internal data carefully as well as our community data as we make decisions. We will still post our full weekly COVID-19 numbers on our website tomorrow afternoon, but will not send an additional update to our families.
We do ask that you continue to report positive COVID-19 student cases to your buildings as we continue to monitor numbers and make future decisions based on the data we have in hand.
You can expect further information from your building administrators regarding the expectations for remote learning that will occur next week. We will send more information very soon regarding food service plans during our remote days.
We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this truly unique time.
OPT-IN: REMOTE LEARNING FOR 3RD QUARTER
The survey linked below is for families who wish to have their student participate ONLY IN REMOTE LEARNING for 3rd quarter. Even if your child is currently learning remotely and you want them to continue, you need to complete this survey for the new quarter. Again, this is only if you wish for your child to only participate in remote learning and never be part of in-person learning at any time during 3rd quarter. We understand that this may be a difficult decision to make, but we do have to work through staffing, transportation, and class changes for 3rd quarter.
PLEASE CLICK BELOW TO BE TAKEN TO THE SURVEY. The survey needs to be completed by November 30th at 4:00 P.M.
Please contact your administrator with questions.
