Principal's Message

Friday, August 7, 2020

 

Hello, all.

In the many e-mails and phone calls I have taken over the last week, I have appreciated everyone’s willingness to allow me to answer questions to the best of my ability as details continue to evolve each day. While I will not be able to meet all requests, I understand the challenges before each family and am here to support in as many ways as I can. Your inquiries and dialogue have helped our Task Force continue to refine our plan and respond to frequently asked questions. I urge you to check out our FAQ page here. This is continuously being updated and has much more instructional information updated this week. 

 

Knowing that many of your questions are connected to the  Enrollment Intent Form, our district has extended that deadline to Monday, August 10, at 3 p.m. We hope this extension affords you with additional time to consider what we know so far, and help to inform your decisions for students. In addition, we hope that by Monday, we will receive a formal announcement on the Governor’s decision for reopening school.

 

If you completed the Enrollment Intent Form and would like to switch instructional models (hybrid or remote), please email me directly and I will grant you access to resubmit the Enrollment Intent Form.

 

For those selecting hybrid, our goal is to have your color/day group assignments communicated next week.  As I have shared with so many of you over the last week, there is an algorithm that will be put to use after those selecting “100% remote learning” are removed from the greater population. This algorithm will take into account households with children across multiple schools, allowing families to attend school on the same days while also helping us balance class sizes and transportation across the district.  As we get back to learning, our top priority in re-opening remains the safety of your children.

Regardless of which model you selected, I have attached the district’s updated school calendar for the 2020-2021 year, which was approved at this week’s meeting of the Board of Education. The first day of school has been changed to Monday, September 14, regardless of which model you selected.  By frontloading the year’s four conference days, this will allow us the opportunity to train staff on our new learning plans, and provide them with the time they need to prepare for the variety of plans we are offering. 

We are all committed to providing the safest and best learning experiences for all of our students and will continue to communicate details as they are developed.  I thank you for your partnership and support.  Please continue to stay safe and enjoy this beautiful summer weather.
