We are posting this in hopes to obtain feedback from our beloved community before moving forward with a possible alteration of our school calendar for next year. Our state’s commissioner of education has indicated that regardless of what happens with the COVID-19 Virus for next year, our students will be required to make up any days missed if they fall short of the minimum time requirements. Most schools build in a small cushion every year just in case they have to close for the flu or for bad weather. Our school is no different; we always build in a little extra time just for such events. This year, though, we have considered starting our school a week earlier and adding fifteen minutes to the day which is different than what we discussed when we approved the school calendar in March. This accomplishes two things for us this year:
1. It gets our kiddos back into school a little sooner as we can only imagine they are going stir crazy for being out for so long.
2. It allows us to build-up a total of 18 extra days of time in case we have to close school for an outbreak of the flu or COVID virus within our community.
Last year, we had to close school for several days for the regular flu, and we anticipate parents being even more cautious about their children this year (and rightfully so). We will call these extra built in days, Contingency Days, on the calendar. If we have to take time out from school, we will go to school on these days. If we don’t have to close school for a length of time, our kiddos will have five extra days off during the school year for small breaks. We believe that not adding this extra time may result in us having to add those extra days to the end of the school year next year which will more than likely have our students with an altered graduation day and a school year going on into June. We would like to take these proactive steps to avoid this, but we wanted your input before we moved forward.
