As we begin the new school year, August 5th, safety is on everyone’s mind. We were all affected by the coronavirus pandemic that closed schools across the nation this past spring.
The safety of students and staff is one of Ipakanni’s highest priorities. All of us—students, parents, and school employees—have an important role to play in keeping our staff and students safe.
Parents will be given the following option(s) for their child to begin school in the fall:
Modified schedule -Monday thru Thursday, Friday -All Grades- Distant Learning
First/Second Grade/Third- 12:00-3:30
Fourth/Fifth Grade- 8:00-11:30
Sixth Grade- 12:00-3:30
Seventh/Eighth/Ninth Grade- 8:00-11:30
Tenth/Eleventh/Twelfth Grade 12:00-3:30
2. Distant Learning option -daily contact with teacher and Friday mandatory Zoom meetings
Students’ safety begins at home by establishing a foundation of communication with your children. Parents, talk to your child about the proper outlets for stress, anger, and other emotions, monitor their social media, and engage in dialogue with them if they have concerns regarding COVID-19. Below are a few things to know and share with your child to help keep our school as safe as possible:
At this time, all staff and students will be required to wear masks
Hand washing and sanitizing equipment have been added to every classroom
Protocol and procedures for arrival and departure including temperature checks will be conducted
Child care will be provided if arrangements are made in advance
Our full reopening plan can be found HERE. We understand that every individual brings their own concerns to the table and that guidance will remain very fluid over the next months as more continues to be learned about COVID-19. Our goal is to ensure equitable access to education for all our students while continuing to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our staff and students.
We appreciate your patience as we move forward. Together, let’s make sure our students are safe, supported, and ready to learn, grow, and thrive.
