Kindergarten Returns Full Time Starting March 1

The Board of Education has approved two changes to the instructional model: 1) Kindergarten students will resume five days a week of in-person learning starting on Monday, March 1. The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

Resolution of Respect

  • I will seek to gain understanding of those who are different from myself.
  • I will speak out against prejudice and discrimination.
  • I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate.
  • I will promote respect for people and help foster a prejudice-free school.
  • I believe that one person can make a difference – no person can be an “innocent” bystander when it comes to opposing hate.
  • I recognize that respecting individual dignity and promoting intergroup harmony are the responsibilities of all students.
