Welcome to the School Year 2020-21 which will be unlike any other back to school for us (and the nation). This page will be updated throughout the year as we do our best to keep you informed of how schools will operate under COVID-19. This is a big challenge for all of us and the more we work together to provide each other support, the more our children can be ready to learn in a positive environment.
The extent to which we all can meet the physical distancing and face-covering guidelines will reduce or increase our county metrics.

PSA: Protocols for In-Person Hybrid
For ALL students, any changes to the student’s current instructional model for Term 3 must be decided by February 5.
As we review the updated protocols for in-person instruction, we know there is much to consider before transitioning into a Hybrid learning model for all students. We need to evaluate our planned cohorts to ensure class sizes that can accommodate the required social distancing in our schools. Our Blueprint for Reopening guidance documents (on our website) must be followed and implemented per the new RSSL updated guidance. We are staggering the return of students in order to ensure a careful and systematic approach. Student and staff safety is essential to us, and we want to do this as carefully as we can and still have our kids back in school successfully.
PLEASE READ THIS:
All parents need to make sure that they have updated their schools with their children’s most up to date medical information.
Also, parents need to update their schools with the most up to date contact information for each of their children.
We are very explicitly watching for these primary COVID-19 symptoms every day at school: Cough, fever (temperature of 100.4°F or higher) or chills, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or new loss of taste or smell. If your child has any of these symptoms (unrelated to a chronic condition) you will need to come to get your child right away. Please keep your child home if they have any signs of an infectious disease.
