facebook image from facebook UPDATED D. 202 Return to In-Person Learning Plans District administration updated the Board of Education on our plans to return students slowly and safely to in-person learning at the Board of Education meeting last night. This update includes more details about what a "hybrid" school day will look like, and related points. We will share more information later this week including the dates for the rest of our students to return to in-person learning. ***PLEASE REMEMBER, every part of this plan is tentative and must remain flexible to adjust as needed to changing pandemic conditions. Finally, we have also added a new "Return to In-Person Learning" page with several resources specifically for parents, including a special handbook, student self-certification procedures and mask protocols and accommodations. *All these resources are housed on the "2020-21 School Year" page at the top of all district and school websites: www.psd202.org/page/school-year-info We are fully committed to safely getting all students and staff back to in-person learning (if parents choose to do so.) We need, count on and greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and support. More coming later this week. #202proud
