    INSTRUCTIONAL SETTING

    Parents may request to change a student’s learning model, and those requests will be processed according to the following timelines:

    Initial request to go from Online Learning to On-Campus Learning will be processed within 5 days. Those students who make multiple requests to change from Online Learning to On-Campus Learning will be required to wait until the end of the nine-week grading period. 

    Requests to change from On-Campus Learning to Online Learning will be processed within 1 school day.

    DISTRICT RESPONSE TO POSITIVE CASES

    If there is a positive COVID-19 case or if someone has COVID-19 symptoms at a campus, the campus will send a letter home with the students. If a child has come in close contact with the infected or possibly infected individual, the parent will receive a direct call from the campus.

    Due to privacy laws and rules, we cannot identify the person, student or staff, who has tested positive or who has symptoms. We will initiate our COVID-19 sanitizing and disinfecting protocols for the campus, and we urge you to continue to talk with your child about the proper safety precautions he or she can take while at school.

    We will continue to participate and encourage best safety practices at school, which include washing hands, use of hand sanitizer, wearing masks and/or face shields, and social distancing. If you have questions, please contact your child’s principal.

    COMMUNICATION

    Parents need to make sure that they keep their contact information in Skyward updated. There exists a possibility that we may need to have a classroom, a campus, or the entire school district resume online learning for an extended period of time, and we want to make sure that we have the most updated information on file to reach parents as soon as possible.
