Frequently Asked Questions on Hybrid In-Person / 100% Virtual Learning Options
We want to thank you for your questions, concerns, and the constructive feedback regarding the proposed plans for hybrid in-person and 100% virtual learning options. We certainly acknowledge that we could have and should have done better with our initial communication, and truly apologize for any confusion and frustration created as a result.
Based on the input we received, we have developed the enclosed frequently asked questions (FAQ) document. This FAQ will be regularly updated based on additional questions and feedback.
We want to remind you that we need all parents to please complete the “commitment form” by 11:59 p.m. on TODAY, Monday, September 28.
The reason we have asked parents to complete the commitment form by Monday, September 28 is so we can use the data to drive decision making and finalize plans. Staffing, transportation, food service, and so much more is dependent on knowing how many students are opting for hybrid in-person vs 100% virtual learning.
We understand that it is difficult to make a “commitment” without all the details. We are asking parents to please use the commitment form as a “preference”. As details of the plans are finalized, parents will have the option to change their preference before the start of the second marking period.
To complete the commitment form, you must log in to your student’s email account and use the link embedded in the email. If you have more than one student, you will have to log in separately for each of your students and use the link in each student’s email. The reason you must do this is the links are specifically connected to each individual student account.
If you are having trouble, you may contact your teacher or the school. Every staff member received a link that they can use to complete the commitment form for you. You may also contact the hotline at 616-301-1111.
