Weekly Update

Friday, August 7th

Hello Mayfield Families,

I hope this communication finds you and your families well. It is hard to believe that we are just about one week away from the start of the new school year. This will be unlike any school year that we have ever experienced. Given this challenge, our staff is excited to welcome your children and ready to provide an engaging, encouraging, and rigorous learning experience. Last spring, we were all engaged in "emergency learning." We began remote instruction on March 16th thinking that it would end by the beginning of April. Little did we know that we would continue to talk about this in August. Overall, we learned a lot from the spring and we have changed our delivery model to deliver best practices to our students.

One important change that we made this year is transitioning from an eight period day to a four period hybrid block schedule. This change was made for our students to focus on fewer courses per day in an engaging, authentic, and encouraging learning environment. Students will be required to attend their assigned courses daily where attendance will be taken. Our staff will structure their courses in a way that allows for direct instruction, conferencing, small group and independent work, and daily assessment.

As I mentioned to my staff today, we do not have a road map that informs us how to conduct school during a pandemic. We are creating a plan that includes instructional best practices and the needs of our students and families while keeping the focus of the whole child as the center of our conversations. In the end, it has been difficult to navigate during this time of crisis, but we will continue to create opportunities for our students to thrive.
