Week of November 30th Group B

SHS Continuing with Hybrid Model

Good Afternoon,

Attached to this email, please read a letter from Superintendent Andries and our STA President, Mrs. Kennedy. The letter explains that Scituate High School will remain in the A/B hybrid model on Nov. 30th. Below is some of the data that our team used to make our decision. You can see that our in-person attendance is typically at or below 25% of our total student population which meets the Governor's suggested limited model.



The data shows that what we are doing in Scituate is working right now. We will continue to monitor the COVID cases on a daily basis and if we feel we should change our plan, we will.


The Numbers:

As of Nov. 24th Here are the numbers

How many full time DL students- 156/394 = 40%

How many students expected week A 100+11 (full time) =111/394 = 28%

How many students expected week B 126+11 (full time) 35%

How many students are full time in person 11

Attendance in person Nov. 9th (Week A) 90/111 =23% of students in person

Attendance in person on Nov. 10th (Week A ) 60/111 = 15% of students in person

From Social Studies

Students in Modern World History classes recently completed a unit comparing the Bubonic Plague to Covid-19. As a culminating activity, Mrs. Seger invited Dr. James McDonald from the RI Department of Health, and personal advisor to Governor Gina Raimondo, to visit our google meet and answer students questions. Students truly enjoyed hearing about the history of pandemics, as well as the current status of the disease in our state, from an expert.

Non-Discrimination

The Scituate School Department has released an updated non-discrimination policy. Please note that our Scituate High School 2018-2019 student and parent handbook was printed before the new statement was released. Therefore, the non-discrimination policy in this year's handbook is out of date. The current policy with updates is as follows:



The Scituate School Department does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, race, religion, national origin, color, creed, political affiliation or disability in any of its educational programs and activities, and in employment and application for employment, as required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1965, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and other federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies: Equal Employment Officer, P.O. Box 188, North Scituate, Rhode Island 02857, Telephone: (401) 647-4100; Email: EEO@ScituateSchoolsRI.net. You may also direct inquiries directly to: Office for Civil Rights (Boston Office), U.S. Department of Education, 8th Floor, 5 Post Office Square, Boston, MA 02109-3921, Telephone: (617) 289-0111; Facsimile: (617) 289-0150; Email: OCR.Boston@ed.gov.
