Learning Modes for January 19-22, 2021

Learning Modes for January 19-22, 2021

January 15, 2021 

Dear Families,

The District Safety Committee met last night to review COVID-19 metrics in our community and discussed the possibility of reopening our schools for in-person learning for the coming week.  

After thorough review of the data, it has been determined that, we are able to bring all Woodland School students, preK-2, back to in-person learning on January 19, 2021. As a reminder, if we get just ONE positive case of a student or staff member in our in-person population we will have to pivot to full-remote learning again. If any cases are reported today or over the weekend that result in the closure, we will notify families immediately. We understand that this is not ideal for planning purposes but we are working to provide as much in-person learning as possible for students during this COVID-19 pandemic. 
We are also able to continue with a small number of students who participate in substantially specialized educational programs for in-person learning. Those same students were in-person this week. 

All students in grades 3-12 will continue to participate in full-remote learning through January 22, 2021.

As we have previously stated, we will continue to monitor the data and make decisions on a weekly basis. We hope to provide the best opportunity to bring students back to in-person learning at the earliest possible date while prioritizing the health and safety of our staff and students.

On Friday, January 22, 2021, we will notify families of the status of in-person/hybrid learning for the upcoming week.
