Dear T-Bird Families,
As we reflect on last school year, thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we have dealt with an unprecedented situation in our schools. We have completed nearly three months of Remote Learning, which came with many challenges. The work of our students, families, and staff has been inspiring.
Working together, the faculty, administration and staff at LUHS and STAR Academy, we were able to meet many of the challenges successfully. As we move forward, we will face challenges and are again working together to begin a new school year.
We hear you that you want certainty regarding what school will look like in the District this fall. However, certainty at this time is not possible. Even though we do not yet have specifics to share with you, the staff are developing plans of action for welcoming students and staff back to the classroom.
In May, I established a work group to determine what challenges and scenarios might await our district as we return to school in the fall.
The work group will prioritize the principles of educating the whole child while at the same time working to protect the health and safety of our students and staff. The work group is partnering with local and state agencies to examine a variety of important issues, including social distancing, cleaning and procedures.
We are considering and planning for different scenarios that may occur in the fall including:
1. In-person learning. A majority of students attend school in-person with safety protocols in place.
2. Blended learning. Enhanced physical distancing by implementing staggered schedules.
3. Remote learning. Classes taught by teachers online.
Above all, the health and safety of our families, students, staff and community members is most important. We will continue to provide updates on the 2020-2021 school year as more information is made available.
We want to gather feedback to help us plan and continue to support you and your students. Your input is greatly appreciated. Please complete this survey by June 30th for each child that attends LUHS or Star Academy.
