2020-2021 Reopening Plan

Supporting student safety, well-being, and academic success during the coronavirus pandemic

Back-to-School Information for Families

The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12. Below you will find links to our current reopening plan, as well as important information about our health and safety protocols, transportation, activities and athletics, and other important back-to-school information.

While this is our plan at this time, the evolving nature of this health crisis will require us to remain flexible as we plan for the start of the school year and beyond. The Governor’s Office, as well as our local and state health departments, could issue new orders at any time that would require us to alter our fall semester reopening plans. In mid-July, we will share additional information communicating our final plan for the opening of the school year. Within a couple of days of receiving our final plan, this will be followed by more detailed information directly from your school principal regarding your student’s specific schedule and any other relevant information.

From the Superintendent

Thank you for your continued partnership during this challenging time for our community. Over the past several months, we have been working closely with our county and state health agency partners, as well as the Governor’s Office, to navigate the complex and continually evolving coronavirus pandemic and its impact on our students, families, teachers, staff, and schools. We have had a comprehensive task force in place since April to develop a plan that would ensure community safety while also supporting the best possible learning environment for our students.

It has always been our priority to return to full-time in-person learning as soon as it is safe and feasible to do so. While we may have to begin with a hybrid model for some grade levels, we intend to move to full-time (100 percent) in-person learning for all grade levels as soon as our county health department and the Governor’s Office orders allow us to do so.

Again, thank you for your continued support. I continue to be inspired by the strength, grit, teamwork, compassion, and ingenuity exhibited by our students, families, teachers, staff, and others who have come together to join us in finding creative solutions that will support the growth and success of our students and community. If you have any questions about our reopening plan, please contact your school’s principal or feel free to contact me directly.
