Face to Face Instruction

What to Expect & How We Can Help Keep Haun Healthy

School Information

A Message From Your Principals

Hello Husky Families,


Here is more information for our families of Face2Face learners. Additionally you should expect a Haun Return to School Plan from your child’s teacher that went out yesterday or will no later than today. Words can’t express how excited we all are about seeing some of our Huskies in person on September 9 when they return to school. It will be a great day!!!!


Just a reminder, if your child is currently enrolled in a School @ Home class your child continues online as they have been when school resumes after the Labor Day break. It is NOT an option for students who are registered for School@Home to return to campus on September 9. A window will open at the end of September for parents to request a change of learning environment. This includes students in the following classes for School@Home. (Talamantez, Farrand, Rudiger, Burnett, James, Nelson, Pierpont, McCarter, Graves, Shinneman, Pena, Podnieks and Cramer/Navarre).


Your School@Home and Face2Face teachers are working tirelessly every day in this new learning experience. This week the Face2Face teachers are also adding safety protocols to their work in order to provide the safest learning environment possible. We are working to inform you about all the new safety protocols and expectations. It is critical for families to read all messages from school in order for you to prepare your students for returning to the campus. Please remember things can change at the last minute, so as we’ve told our staff, flexibility is an important word to remember for this year.


Tuesday, September 8 is a student holiday and staff development day. This will allow time for us to reflect on our practices to make any needed adjustments we find are needed. It will take every one of us to maintain the safest of conditions possible.


Have a wonderful weekend,


Ms. Smith & Mr. Karl

2020-2021 Academic Calendar
