School Choice for 20-21

Updated 07.14.20

I can imagine that as parents you have many questions surrounding our reopening. I would like to thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate the reopening of school.

Governor Ducey has ordered that the earliest schools could reopen in-person is August 17, but schools could provide remote learning earlier. The Vail School District has announced that it will reopen all schools remotely beginning on August 10 and students may come back on campus for face to face instruction upon the conclusion of the executive


Information on what a remote start will look like is currently in development and specific plans will be shared with parents prior to August 10, 2020. Remote Learning lessons will be delivered through Schoology in the content areas of Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. Components will include 5 days a week of student engagement, a focus on mastery learning, and assignments that will be submitted and graded by their teacher. Teachers will maintain communication and connection with their students through Remote Learning.

I understand that this is not the ideal start to the school year or what we have hoped for but we are committed to our relationships, providing solid instruction, and maintaining communication with families in the process.

I encourage parents to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions.

We miss you all terribly and we are looking forward to being together as a school as soon as we can!
