2020-2021 School Year
The COVID-19 pandemic is a national crisis that poses a serious health risk for everyone. With this in mind, we will be moving forward with a phased back-to-school plan for the 2020-2021 year. This will start on Tuesday, Sept. 8 with 100 percent distance learning or virtual learning for all students. In-person classes will start for students in pre-K through grade 3 only after the number of COVID-19 cases in our community decreases for 14 days in a row. This process will be repeated in phases for upper elementary, middle school and high school students. Our goal is to be back to 100 percent in-person learning when it is safe to do so.
The decision to reopen our school buildings for in-person classes will be based on data and science. We will work closely with public health officials before re-opening any of our school buildings. This process will not follow any predetermined timeline but will rather evolve based on the status of the pandemic in our community. Our response will balance the need to protect public health and provide a public education.
