The COVID-19 pandemic has put us into uncharted territory. As health care professionals continue to work on better treatment and a vaccine, we must work together to lower the risk of exposure and supporting the health and well-being of our entire district community, while still educating and supporting our students.
Our classrooms will look and feel different this fall, and so will our routines. It will take time and constant positive reinforcement to establish these as our new norms. If we are going to be successful – and operate some form of in-person learning throughout the year – we will need our community’s help.
We continue to learn about COVID-19, and as the science changes our responses may need to change as well. We may find ourselves adopting new strategies or measures – and quickly having to revise our plans. Flexibility is key as we try to contain the spread of COVID-19. We are in this together, and working in partnership we will respond and address changes as needed to support our learners in a safe and healthy environment.
