It has been an unusual five months since we stopped in person classes because of COVID-19. So many changes have taken place and continue to do so. With that being said, I have never been so excited to have students and the full staff back to school. The one thing I am sure of is this, school is the best place for kids to be. From talking with some of our students, the one thing they have all had in common is they are ready to get back into school. For many of our students, school is the best part of their day. They need to Return to Learn!
Below is a link to the reentry plan for starting back to school on August 25. Weeks of planning and input from multiple individuals and agencies has gone into developing the plan and I am so appreciative of all of them for their help. Providing education for students is not easy, especially in times like these. Everyone is going to need to be very flexible as we start the year. It might take several tries and additional practice to get new procedures to work correctly or we might find that what looks good on paper does not work like we thought it would and have to shift gears. Just like teachers never discover new and different ways to teach without trying new things, we will not know how the plan will work until we try it. The plan is rather long, but it is meant to be thorough so everyone is informed how the Winston R-VI School District plans to “Return to Learn”
