Return to Campus Family Guide
The Return to Campus Family Guide provides much of the information you’ll need to make the decision about whether your child will return to school for the remainder of the semester or continue with online instruction. Once you have a full understanding of the choices, we ask you to let us know whether your child will return to the classroom or complete the semester online. Schools will need that information to finalize plans to make sure every student gets the best possible education.
A Day in the Life
Second-grader Mia shows us what a typical day will be like for elementary school students when they return to campus.
Message from Superintendent Austin Beutner
I hope this finds you and your family safe and well. It’s been an extraordinary year since COVID-19 forced the closure of school classrooms. A time of sacrifice and determination, pain and suffering, and moments of hope and optimism – sometimes all in the same day. I’m pleased to share we see light at the end of the tunnel and plan to reopen school classrooms in April.
