Returning students to the classroom is critical to their educational success and for reopening our economy. We understand that virtual learning has meant that some of you have not been able to return to work, or have had to make arrangements for your children that you would not normally have had to make.  Per the Governor’s recommendation, we had to make the difficult decision to start school virtually. Our teachers and students were up for the challenge and, all things considered, virtual learning has went well.

It is also critical that we reopen the schools to help in eliminating the achievement gaps that have occurred due to COVID. It is our hope that returning to in-person instruction will help us more readily see where these gaps are, adjust instruction, and support students to close those gaps.

We are planning on reopening our schools for in-person instruction beginning October 12, 2020. Any student wishing to return to in-person instruction may do so beginning on that day. Virtual learning will also still be available for any student/family wishing to continue with virtual instruction. Google Classroom will continue to be our Learning Management System.

We all need to work together and take the necessary precautions that will allow us to keep our schools open.
