Being away from our students for so long has been difficult for all of us, and I want so much for us to be back together again in school, however, I also care deeply about the safety and wellbeing of our students, their families, our teachers, our administrators, and all staff. We will reopen school in August, but what that will look like will be very different.
Our leadership team is currently working on a plan to reopen school. We all know how important it is for students to return to school, however, we also know that in order for students to return to in-person learning, it must be safe. We understand that many parents are not yet comfortable sending their children back to in-person learning. That is why we are planning two options:
- a 100% virtual learning academy where students will work from home entirely
- a hybrid model where students will learn some of the time in-person, with social distancing and some time at home in virtual learning.
When we are ready to implement the hybrid model, parents will be able to choice between these two models. Once we have our plan completed, we will post it here on our website.
No matter which option parents choose, we will provide the support needed for students to engage in learning successfully in either model. We will continue to be a source of strength and hope for our students and families and we will continue to get through this difficult time together. I miss all of you, so much! Stay safe. Stay well.
Thinking of you always,
Rhonda L. Richetta, Principal
