We are busily preparing for school re-opening on April 12 for those families who have elected to return. We have designed a plan that ensures equitable access to instructional resources to both in-person and virtual learners.
In summary, the final plan has the following components and was developed after reviewing the number of in-person learners and their distribution by grade level:
Additionally, to account for the potential homeroom class changes that will occur in this plan, we have extended second trimester for this year only. We will remain in Trimester 2 through April 9, with report cards coming out on April 16. Trimester 3 will begin the day homeroom changes take effect, Monday, April 12, and it will be shorter than usual (45 days long, the same as a standard academic quarter).
This plan accommodates the 105 students (30% of our total students) whose families responded to the Opt-In survey by March 1st that they wanted to take part in our in-person learning program. We are keeping a waiting list for those who responded on March 2nd or after.
We will have information sessions for families to discuss the information in this letter and to respond to questions you may have. Please visit us on the Community Breakfast link on Zoom at one of the following times (content will be the same at each meeting):
Wednesday, March 17 at 6:00pm
Thursday, March 18 at 9:00am
We look forward to working with you and your family to support success and achievement for all of our students.
