As the start of the 2020-2021 school year approaches, we face challenges that are new to all of us. We continue to receive guidance each week from the Department of Education and, as you know, things are ever-changing. We do want you to know that we plan on school starting August 26th, and we will offer instruction multiple ways such as:
1 - (Traditional) In-person classes.
2 - (Virtual/Online) Using Odysseyware or Google Classroom. This will be new content so that the student can obtain credits and learn core content for the specific grade.
We believe that the traditional setting is the best form of instruction; however, we will work with you to meet your family's needs. If neither of these options work for you and you still have concerns, please contact us at the Board of Education.
We will practice all of the most recent CDC guidelines that have been handed down.
*Masks will be provided and at this time will be required unless we can social distance while at school. We are hopeful that once we are in the classrooms that we can practice social distancing and the masks can come down if the student chooses.
*Temperatures will be checked each day on the bus or upon the arrival to school.
*We will provide hand sanitizer for every classroom and provide frequent opportunities to wash hands as well.
Our goal is to provide the best and safest education we can during this difficult time. Below you will find a link that will ask you about your thoughts/plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Please complete this survey as it will help us in finalizing our back-to-school plans. As we continue to make more detailed plans we will share that information with you when it is finalized. Thank you, stay well, and we hope to see you soon.
