    Dear Parent / Guardian:

    The district is currently evaluating the feasibility of increasing our in-person contact time for students in the hybrid model, while adhering to the current social distancing requirements. A definitive in-person student enrollment number is needed to evaluate our ability to increase in-person contact given the required social distancing. Any increase to hybrid/in-person contact time is dependent on the number of students who are committed to virtual learning through the end of the school year and social distancing requirements.

    Based on our records, you have one (1) or more children currently enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy.

    At this time, we are asking all K-12 families with children currently enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) to commit to virtual learning for the remainder of the 20-21 school year with the understanding that requests for a change to hybrid/ in-person instruction will no longer be approved.

    • If you make this commitment, your child will not be able to participate in the hybrid/in-person model for the remainder of the 20-21 school year.
    • No exceptions will be made as this impacts our ability to make improvements to our hybrid/in-person learning model given the social distancing requirements.
    • If you accept this commitment to the Virtual Learning Academy (VLA), you do not need to do anything at this time. After March 8, 2021, your child will be automatically confirmed in virtual learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Again, you will not be able to make any changes to your child’s learning model after this date.

    If you would like your child to move to hybrid/ in-person learning, you must contact your child’s school no later than Monday, March 8, 2021. After this date, you will not be able to change to hybrid/in-person learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

    If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your child’s principal or school counselor.

    Sincerely,


    Sabatino Cimato
    Superintendent
