This is a reminder that on Tuesday, I announced that we have planned and are scheduling the move to a modified Stage 3 Hybrid Learning Model beginning on Monday, October 26. This means we plan to begin phasing in some of the groups listed in Stage 3 - starting with students in Headstart, the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP), and the Adult Transition Program (ATP) - Pathways. The return of other groups listed in the Stage 3 Hybrid Learning Model will be evaluated in the coming days as we continue to monitor the data.
I want to thank all the staff who have been preparing for a safe return to in-person learning for our students. Also, I want to remind everyone that we will continue to watch the trends and all other considerations that might have an impact on a safe return. Should the infection rate continue to trend in an unhealthy direction, we will have to reconsider the timing of moving to a modified Stage 3. We want to be thoughtful and deliberate in our moves and are taking a measured approach with small groups of students and staff returning first so that we can sustain our in-person learning.
Wishing you and yours an abundantly joyful early fall weekend.
Michelle Reid, Ed.D.
