Aug. 11, 2020: Virtual forums planned; back-to-school survey due Aug. 16
The Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District has scheduled three opportunities for parents and guardians to learn about the district’s reopening plan, ask questions and voice concerns.
Virtual information sessions will be held via Zoom at:
Families are asked to submit questions ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. The district will also soon be posting on its website a frequently asked questions page that will address common questions and concerns.
Parents are also being asked to complete a back-to-school survey by Sunday, Aug. 16, indicating whether their children will participate in remote or in-person instruction and if they will need transportation.
So that parents can plan accordingly, we have determined that students will be split into the following groups:
- Group A: Students in grades 2-12 with last names starting with A-Kaur
- Group B: Students In grades 2-12 with last names starting with Kearse-Z
- Group C: All other special education students and English language learners
- Group D: Students in kindergarten and grade one and our highest needs special education students
- Group E: Students in grades K-12 whose parents/guardians select an entirely remote option where their children do not attend any in-person school
For those students whose families choose in-person instruction, the link below shows which days students in the groups above will attend school and which days they will participate remotely.
Hybrid Model Summary Sheet
“We recognize that each model poses some type of challenge for our families, but we created these groups with the best interests of our students in mind, carefully planning for our most vulnerable students and taking into consideration social distancing restrictions,” Superintendent Peter Smith said.
Important updates will be posted on the district website and via SchoolMessenger. If families have questions or concerns that aren’t answered during the parent forums or on the website, they can send them to email@example.com or their child's building principal.
“We recognize that there is more work to be done, and we’ll adjust, adapt and communicate as much as needed,” Smith said. “With the support of our families, community and outstanding staff and faculty, we will get through this together.”
