Our district is interested in your input regarding the recent American Rescue Plan (ARP) and Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) federal funding allocation for the upcoming 2021, 2022, and 2023 school years. A minimum of 20 percent of ARP funds must be used to address learning loss. The CRRSA funds may be used to coordinate preparedness and response efforts, purchase PPE and provide related training, repairing and improving school facilities, and improving indoor air quality. Please complete this survey by Friday June 11, to assist us in our planning.
Next, the recently reduced COVID-19 transmission rate in Monroe County has moved our school district out of the red zone allowing us to bring more students back to the high school building. After reviewing the logistics, including serving meals and organizing and providing transportation in a short time frame, we are excited to invite our senior class of 2021 back to in-person classes using 3 foot distancing for the last two weeks of this school year - June 7-18, 2021.
If you are interested in changing your senior class 2021 child's instructional model to four day attendance, please complete this form by Friday, June 4 at noon. If your child will remain in the current hybrid or remote model, you do not need to complete this form.
And finally, we have had many discussions with the county and in-district regarding the Department of Health’s requirement for wearing facemasks. Please know that given the reduced transmission rate in the county, no spread of COVID-19 in our schools, and the current warmer temperatures, we have given flexibility to our staff to address opportunities for facemask breaks both in the classroom and outside.
