• Instructional Model Options for the 2020-2021 school year

    Welcome back! We look forward to the 2020-2021 school year. As we plan to reopen schools on July 27, 2020, we have two options for families to consider as they determine how they want to begin this school year during this unique time in our history. We realize that during these fluid times there are many factors that you are considering when you are determining the best option for your family.

    For this year, your options include either in-person/on campus learning or online learning.

    It is important to know that we will allow for flexibility and transition into either learning option. For example, if you select remote learning at this time, you can transition back to in-person/on campus learning at the conclusion of each quarter. Or if you start the school year in-person/on campus you can transition into remote learning at any time.

    Below are more details about our two learning options:

    Choice 1
    In-person/on campus learning: With this option K-12 students will return to the campus. The goal is to have all students on campus at the same time, however, this option could include some flexible scheduling should the need arise.

      • Preventative safety measures and enhanced cleaning protocols
      • Physical distancing may not always be possible but will be implemented when feasible
