We are excited because we have entered the Red Tier for new infection rates of Covid. Students and teachers may begin coming back to school for some in person. I cannot empathize enough with how happy this makes us.
As discussed, we will be returning in a phased-in approach in order for students to fully learn and practice our safety protocols. Below is an outline of our return to school timeline. Please keep in mind this is highly variable depending on the direction new infection rates head. We are updating our Phase 4 plan to best respond to current health conditions. The updated Phase 4 schedule will be coming out in the next 2 weeks.

Student and Community Testing to Keep our Kids On Campus
Please sign up for weekly testing for yourself and your child. Contact your health provider for a test if you have symptoms or know you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Keeping COVID cases off of our campuses will keep our in person learning possible. As a reminder, if a student or or teacher tests positive for COVID, we will need to transition that cohort back to distance learning for at least two weeks to avoid spreading the virus.
Sign up at one of the following locations to begin your regular weekly testing:
