Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare for the return of full in-person instruction the week of March 1, there is information that I need to share with you to make the transition as smooth as possible.
As you may know, we will have all Hybrid A and B students coming to school 4 days a week now and not 2 starting March 1. They will come to school on Mon., Tues., Thur., and Fri… Wednesdays will now be our virtual day. We will move our Friday Virtual Schedule to Wednesdays. I have copied the schedule below.
For students who are Teacher-Directed Virtual, your daily meets will now be Mon., Tue., Thur. On Virtual Wednesdays, teachers have remediation and support for small groups or full classes depending on the class and subject. Your teacher will be communicating with students and parents.
Virtual Academy students will continue with the Edmentum/Plato program. They will continue to be expected to complete a minimum of 15 assignments or 15 hours of work each week to receive participation for the week.
As we move forward, we anticipate close to 350 students returning to the building four days a week. With this number, we will be able to maintain social distancing in most places but not all. There will be classrooms that will have students closer than 6 feet. We are working and have planned since the beginning of this endeavor to limit this as much as possible, but at the end of the day, we will not maintain be able to maintain 6 feet at all times. Keeping this in mind, please talk to your child about doing everything they can to keep themselves safe. There are still health concerns as we move forward through the pandemic, and there are disruption to life concerns as well. We will continue to follow all of the Healthy at Schools guidance that includes quarantining students classified as close contact to a positive Covid case.
Lastly, those who have concerns and would like to change your student’s learning model. Either In-person to virtual or virtual to in-person. Please complete the google form below. If you do not wish to make a change, you do not need to complete the form. We will not make any schedule changes until after March 4, 2021. This will allow us to see the number of requests and make changes to the master schedule if need be. If you are requesting a change to move from in-person to virtual and do not feel comfortable the week of March 1 in attending classes, please keep your child home, and we will excuse the absence. Your student should follow along with the google classroom assignments to complete the work expected before the schedule changes.
To help with answering any questions you may have, we will host a town hall-style of meeting on Feb. 25th at 6 pm in the Lloyd Cafeteria. The meeting will have an in-person option and a google meet video option. I have attached the link to the meeting below. If you enter the meeting virtually we ask that you mute yourself upon entry and put any questions you may have in the Chat. For those that want to come in person, we will follow all of the healthy at school guidance. This will include temperature checks, Covid questionnaire, masking, and maintaining social distancing.
