I am following up to let you know that we indeed are inviting the students in grades 5-12 back in to school on December 17th, 18th, 21st and 22nd.
We acknowledge that this is just before the holiday break and some parents might choose to keep their children at home. We support that decision.
Our goal is to create some experiences for teachers and other staff to touch base with students, to allow students some safe options to interact with each other, and try to meet any other social, emotional, and academic needs of students that could be supported by having them back into the school building for a couple days.
To be clear, this is not an official Learning Model change, but instead our acknowledgement and recognition that Distance Learning is socially challenging for many students, and if we can find a way to support that routine in some safe manner we are willing to do it.
Sixth graders will be coming in person as a whole grade on December 17th and 18th. Fifth graders will be coming in as a whole grade on December 21st and 22nd. This will allow each grade to 'spread out' within the middle school space.
Grades 7 through 12 can come in on the days of the week assigned to them for hybrid in October. Thursday/Monday or Friday/Tuesday.
More details regarding schedules for students on those days, will be forthcoming on the website and/or other communication from teachers or principals. Thank you.
