A Message from Dr. Wheeler
December 14, 2020
At the end of this message, please find a link to our December 14, 2020 Community Update. In this document, we address three essential items as we work through our Health and Safety Plan to address the COVID-19 pandemic in our community. The three essential items include:
- Instructional Model Status: Why we are remaining open
- Resetting Building Case Counts: Virtual Friday Schedule
- Introduction of COVID-19 Daily Dashboard: Updated daily to allow for broad community tracking
The document will be sent home today in hard copy with all of our students in grades K-5. We will send the document home with all 6-12 students tomorrow, when they return from closure.
Our framework for keeping schools open reflects our current understanding of community sentiment regarding our instructional model. As our context and situation evolves and changes, it will be important for our processes and frameworks to evolve and change as well.
We have been very fortunate to avoid a significant volume of positive cases or presumed positive cases in any of our buildings thus far this year. The willingness of our entire community to self-isolate, quarantine and follow our health and safety plan has provided our kids with a great opportunity to learn in-person. We are truly grateful and beyond appreciative of our community’s diligence over the last for months of school.
