Dear High School Students and Families,
With our current situation with covid cases and quarantines, we are experiencing a shortage of school personnel and substitutes to cover classes and deliver course content through in person instruction. However, we are confident that the content will be delivered effectively through remote learning and live streaming opportunities.
Due to this shortage, remote learning for grades 9-12 will be the method of instruction starting this Thursday, November 12th and tentatively continue through Friday, November 13th. The status of our personnel shortage will be assessed over the weekend and further information will be provided prior to Monday, November 16th if remote learning will continue. Please plan for in person instruction on November 16th at this time unless you hear otherwise from the school.
Our HS students have the necessary technology to effectively transition to remote learning. Please note that these remote learning days are school days and students are expected to participate through live streaming and the Google classroom for each class period. Instructions for remote learning will be provided to your child by their teachers via email or Google Classroom. We encourage you and your child to contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.
Just to be clear, only grades 9-12 will be remote learning. In person instruction will continue to take place for students K-8 as we have the necessary personnel at this time.
We have been fortunate that positive cases have been very low amongst our students and we hope that continues. We encourage everyone to continue to do all they can to reduce exposure and the spread of the virus.
This decision to transition to remote learning does not come lightly, but with our current personnel shortage, we feel it is the best option at this time. We are optimistic that we will have adequate staff to resume in person instruction next week, which we will keep you posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Casey Klasna - Superintendent
