News & Announcements
As we have closed out the first quarter, the district needs families to decide which instructional model they will commit to for each student in their household. While previous surveys have asked for you to indicate a preference. This one asks you to commit to a choice of three paths: remote-only learning, two in-person/three remote days, or four in-person/1 remote days. While the trends with the virus and a district preference for in-person instruction will influence decision-making, this choice would otherwise be locked in for the foreseeable future. We are targeting January as the potential switching period. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOUR FIRST CHOICE.
In this Sunday update, the Superintendent provides current information on Tuesday's now invalid positive COVID-test concern, changes to student and staff entrance tickets, and the "winter choice" surveys.
For safety and to be in alignment with the Governor's executive order, health screeners will add a multi-household gathering question after Thanksgiving. The superintendent's message can be accessed here.
