Dear Parents,

We are currently making plans to reopen schools and begin a normal school year following our current school calendar.  The first day of school for students is planned to be August 7, 2020.  We are working diligently to prepare for a “different kind of school year” through adapting schedules and increasing our cleaning and personal hygiene activities to promote the healthiest instructional environment possible.  

It is impossible to elaborate on all of the details regarding our planning in this letter, but please know that our goal is to provide the healthiest instructional environment feasible for your children. We plan to follow the current Alabama Department of Health and the Alabama Department of Education guidelines with a focus on providing high quality instruction for our students.   The Alabama Department of Education has released a “Roadmap to Reopening Schools Plan this past Friday.  The Escambia County School System is currently working on a detailed 2020-2021 Return to School Action Plan for reopening our schools.  Our goal is to have that plan completed and ready for release in the next couple of weeks. 

We are also planning for online instruction if we need to transition from face-to-face instruction to online or remote instruction.  In addition, the Alabama State Department of Education is developing a full time virtual offering that allows students to learn online if parents choose to keep them at home for the upcoming school year.  While the students will have support from teachers, it will be different from what you experienced in the normal school setting.  We are working to determine details and availability for being able to provide full time virtual students with access to extra-curricular activities and some electives.  We ask that you complete the survey, located on our school website or Facebook page, to elicit responses from you in order to assist us in our planning for the upcoming school year.  We have also created a QR code that can be scanned to complete the survey.  Please give serious thought to the questions in the survey and respond as soon as you are able.  You may access the survey by clicking SURVEY.

We appreciate your patience during this process and assure you that we are working tirelessly to provide the best education for your children.

Thank you for your input,
