October 22 – Today we welcomed middle and high school students for in-person classes – 52 days after we opened the 2020-21 school year. Students are socially distanced and wearing masks. Classes are small and are being held outdoors as much as possible. We are keeping it safe and excited to be together again. Students in the primary and elementary grades previously returned after the school obtained a waiver from the public health department.
We know for many parents the ability to bring their children back to school is a huge relief after months of pandemic restrictions. We also understand that for remote learning remains a necessity for some families, especially those that work in the medical field or have jobs that may put your child or others at risk. For those living with someone at greater risk of COVID-19, we know this was not an easy choice and we understand your decision to do what is best for your family.
Thank you for being patient during this transition, especially as we flood your inboxes with information on safety protocols, health screenings, and new schedules. And thank you in advance for the patience we will continue to need going forward, especially in the classes where teachers will soon be balancing virtual and in-person instruction.
