Under the proposed Phase 2 – Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade classes may return on September 29th, 2020.  Each regularly sized K-2 class will be a full cohort as students will attend 4 days a week together. This cohort will not interact with any other cohorts during the school day (ie at lunch, recess, etc). Previously defined cohort assignments will no longer apply.

As you might recall, our youngest learners have been one of our biggest concerns from the very beginning. Education is extremely important for each and every one of our students, but our Working Advisory Group acknowledged that this time is especially precious for our kindergarten through second-grade students, who are laying their educational foundations. Research has shown that if students fall behind in these early grades, it is incredibly difficult for them to catch up. Not to mention that we also recognize that children at this age also require a lot more one-on-one support. They are less-able to stay still during synchronous learning opportunities or complete assignments independently and therefore the lessons are a larger burden on our families.

As a result, as long as they are able to meet health precautions, including the wearing of face coverings, we will be offering the opportunity for up to four days of in-person instruction for this age group.
