Option One: Zoned Brick and Mortar (All Grades)
This model represents a return to the school campus and the classroom where students will interact directly with their teacher(s) and classmates. The school day will follow the standard bell times and standard schedule that includes all the core classes and other subject areas. In short, it represents a return to the traditional school environment – with several significant changes involving enhanced health and safety precautions.
Our goal is to create an environment that provides an opportunity for students to return to the traditional school experience, while providing effective safeguards to protect the health and safety of students and staff.
At the elementary school level, we are creating a cohort model, where students will spend time on campus with the group of students in their class, including in the classroom, the cafeteria, media center, and the playground. Interaction with students from other classes will be limited to the greatest extent possible.
At the secondary level, each school will have a customized plan to discourage large gatherings of students in hallways and common areas, using clear communication and signage to reinforce the message. The number of students allowed in the cafeteria, media center and gymnasiums will be reduced. Extracurricular activities will resume with new health and safety protocols and will adhere to recommendations from the state.
No action is required by parents for this choice. Please verify your transportation eligibility for next year by visiting Bus Planner Web. If you qualify for bus services, please complete this Bus Transportation Survey by July 16th to let us know if you plan to have your student ride the bus to/from school. Your student’s school will be in contact with you about schedules and next steps as we get closer to the first day of school on August 11th.
