Return to Learn: Blended Experience

We are just over two weeks away from our first group of students (1st graders) returning to in-person instruction. For those returning in person for quarter 2, you should have received information as to whether you are group A (Red-Monday/Wednesday) or group B (Blue-Tuesday/Thursday). If you are returning in-person in January, you will receive your grouping information at a later date. As we want everyone to feel safe and understand updated procedures, we will be pushing out videos and other communication for what you can expect as we bring students back. For example, grade levels will enter through different doors and we will show what that process looks like for a car-rider or a busser. Students will also be in zones throughout the building to avoid travel from other grades as much as possible. Please understand that this will take some adjusting, but we have resilient students and they will adjust to it!
