Letter from the Superintendent: Postponed Reopening
08/13/2020
Dear Parents/Guardians, The impact of the COVID-19 health crisis continues to pose challenges on public education and has led the District to make very difficult and unpopular decisions regarding reopening our doors to students this September. After much deliberation, the District has decided to delay the implementation of the K-6 in-person hybrid model until October 5, 2020. Therefore, grades K-12 will be 100% remote until October 5. Our plans must remain flexible and we will continue to reassess and make decisions based on the health and safety of our students and staff. This decision was made to ensure that all health and safety protocols, including testing and contact tracing requirements, can be followed. Additionally, students and teachers will have the time to get familiar with live on-line (synchronous) instruction, which is very different from what students and teachers experienced this past spring. Throughout the summer, our staff has been working very hard to improve the on-line learning experiences for our students. In the coming days, each school will be providing the details of their remote learning schedules.

The District understands the need to provide a full remote instruction option if your child is in the high risk category, your child resides with an individual(s) in the high risk category, and/or you are not comfortable having your child attend in-person instruction.
