4 Day Hybrid Schedule beginning 3/29
Good Evening Clipper Families,
This is a special message for you as of Monday, March 29, 2021, your student will have the opportunity to begin attending 4 days per. We are able can make this change due to updated guidance from the CDC and are now using 3 feet of social distancing in classrooms instead of 6 feet. This updated guidance allows us to have more students in a classroom. We will continue to practice social distancing of approximately 6 feet in common areas and in our performing arts classes such as choir and band. Your student’s current instructional mode in the Family Portal has changed to AABB but remember the 4 day per week will not begin until Monday, March 29th. The Transportation Department will be updated as well, and bus contractors will be prepared to transport students 4 days per week as of 3/29/2021 for those students who qualify for school bus transportation.
If you are not comfortable with this new guidance and the implementation of 3 feet of distancing in classrooms and would like to move your student to virtual learning, you may do so by contacting the school at 410-677-5141. Please keep in mind if you change to virtual now and later want to return to in person instruction, approval of your request will be contingent upon available spacing.
We are excited to be able to offer more in person learning for our students as we know it is providing tremendous benefit both socially-emotionally and academically. We look forward to seeing our school continue to come to life!
Have a great evening,
