Instructional Plan for Fall 2020

We have been working on different instructional models for this coming fall and the attached survey will help us narrow our focus. I am planning on a full return to school, which starts on August 20, 2020. (Full Calendar will be finalized in the next few days) However, we know that we have to be ready for multiple models of instruction up to and including full online instruction, depending on how things unfold in Lansing and with the virus itself. Please click on this link to complete our survey. https://forms.gle/aiqT7EhGo2ZGJKPc8 We are attempting to meet the needs for all of our families and we need your input to guide our decision making and planning. This is very important and will only take a few minutes. The survey will be open until next week Friday, June 12. (Open the link to read the full letter)
