Please mark your calendars now to join us in one week on Wednesday evening, August 19, at 6:30 for a special study session school board meeting that will focus on the impact COVID-19 will have on student learning in our district. A focus of the meeting will be getting input for our Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan. We have posted a link to the blank template of that plan in the Live Feed post preceding this one on each school's web page. Because of the special format of Wednesday's meeting, members of the public will be able to engage in a conversation with board members and staff as we plan on how to move forward. Please reach out to your school's principal if you have any questions in this area; we are all hard at work preparing for a smooth start to the school year.

At last night's board meeting, the board voted to approve the 4-step reopening plan that we posted here recently and also to start in Step 2 as long as the state or local public health officials don't move all schools in the county to full distance learning. While we all want to be back with students in-person as soon as possible, the board's action puts safety at the very center of our efforts.

We have been working tirelessly since July 6 on our plans for coming back to school in August. The superintendent has met on multiple occasions with staff members, union leaders, parent leaders elected to the schools' site councils (in addition to those who volunteered to be part of the conversation), and once with the school board. Today, the governor made some significant announcements about reopening schools that we are taking into consideration. The superintendent will present a one-page phased opening matrix to the board for approval this coming Tuesday evening, July 21, at the board meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. You can expect to begin seeing regular updates through these channels as the August 24 start date approaches. We hope you are staying well, and we will keep sending out updates as they arise.
