Dear Parents and Families,
We have positive news to share for high school seniors. After working with our high school principals, we are comfortable that with some creative scheduling we can bring our seniors back four days per week while continuing to meet all of the State health department guidelines. This change will begin on Monday, May 10. The high school principals will be sending detailed information out soon, so please watch for their emails.
Our original plan was to bring all secondary students back to school four days per week in April, but the county infection rate has remained above the level outlined in the state’s return to school guidance for doing so.
Elementary schools will continue with instruction full-time, five days per week and grades 6-11 will continue in the hybrid learning model. If the county infection rate drops to the point where more secondary students can return to class four days per week we will bring them back as well.
This has been a very difficult year for all of our students, families, and staff and this step will at least help our seniors make the most of what is left of their final year of high school. We appreciate your patience and support as we continue our efforts to make the most out of this school year.
Dan Zorn, Superintendent
