Herdrich's High School Headlines
School Starts Monday!
Central Lee High School Families:
Monday is the day! I am sure that many of you feel an apprehensive excitement about starting the 2020-21 school year. I assure you, that is quite typical. Everyone—including your teachers and staff—has mixed emotions about returning. While we cannot guarantee everything will be comfortable and familiar, we promise to be here for you and support you, every step of the way.
The most important things to know about Monday morning are the following:
Masks are required when you are within 6 feet of another person.
Students must park in the main parking lot and are not allowed to park "behind" the school, near the FFA building, or along the track. That is the temporary staff parking lot.
The building will not open until 7:45 a.m., unless for an early-bird class or scheduled practices.
Monday, August 24, is an A Day. It will start with 1st period at 8:25 a.m. Periods 2, 3, and 4 will follow.
Tuesday, August 25, is a B Day. That day will start with 5th period at 8:25 a.m. Periods 6, 7, and 8 will follow.
Students who have online classes or study ahll do not need to report to the building for those scheduled periods.
Your teachers are prepared to explain, practice, and review all the new and ever-changing policies and procedures with you, explaining in detail what will be expected of you this school year.
Included in this newsletter is a lighthearted orientation video that will demonstrate the flexibility and creativity of our staff, while providing you with a bit more information on our school's daily operations. Please take a minute to watch. I hope it both informs you and makes you smile!
Also linked to this newsletter are some answers to frequently asked questions and operational definitions for how we are doing business to start the school year. This document will be reviewed with our students several times during the first few weeks of school.
At Central Lee High School, we remain committed to the health and well-being of our students, families, and staff. We expect to deal with the unexpected—and we are fully prepared to bend and flex as needs and issues arise. We promise to rise to the challenge of providing a sound
educational experience to all students.
The most important thing families can do is stay informed and communicate with teachers, the office, the nurse, or me when questions or concerns arise. Thank you for helping us make this a strong start. We will make the 2020-21 school year the best it can be because, after all, we are proud to be Central Lee!
