As we prepare for the start of the 2021-2022 school year, we are grateful to have 2020 in the rearview mirror. Through a collaborative effort between educators, health officials, support staff, and families, our students resumed learning and developing relationships safely in 2020. If last year taught us anything, it is that schools are a critical vessel for support, friendships, and the social-emotional needs of young people in our community. We are proud of Wildcat Nation’s dedication to uniting for the greater good during such a difficult time. We plan to maintain the grit that got us through 2020 as we head into the 2021 school year.
Creating an exceptionally safe and sanitary learning environment to combat a worldwide pandemic didn’t come without its challenges. Though we are happy to be leaving some of those challenges behind, we learned some valuable lessons while working through them and will keep some of the practices they yielded because now that we know better, we can do better.
This is a living document that will function as a fluid plan and may be adjusted weekly as data comes available.
While we proceed with caution and gratitude, we look forward to a school year that looks a little more ordinary. Thank you for your past partnership and future support!
