On February 22nd, all families and students received information regarding our plans to expand in-person learning for interested students after Spring Break. The communication can be found HERE.

There have been many questions regarding the number of teachers returning to in-person instruction.

There are a variety of reasons a teacher may qualify for remote work that are confidential. We anticipate that some teachers will be returning to the building in the next few weeks, while others may continue to provide instruction remotely. For both students and staff with health conditions, decisions regarding a return to the building are made based on individual circumstances. With changes in regional mitigation efforts and the administration of the vaccine – there is optimism. As teachers have returned, we continue to provide updates via PowerSchool. With our current safety mitigation efforts in place, we are expecting approximately 80% of our teachers to provide in-person instruction following Spring Break (LFEA Survey).

If you would like to make a change to your student’s learning preference, the change/update is due this Friday, March 5th. The changes will be implemented following Spring Break on Monday, March 29th.

Please submit this FORM to change your student’s learning preference to begin on March 29 through the end of the school year. This is the last time students will be able to update their learning preference for in-person learning.

Only submit this FORM if you are changing your student’s learning preference to a different choice than it is right now. Please use this link to read the entire communication.
