HC Roadmap Back to School

Roadmap Back to School 2020-2021


Call-Out Transcript, September 9, 2020  

Beadle Lake, Sonoma and Wattles Park Elementary Schools Families,

In response to COVID-19 we made changes in elementary staffing and scheduling to significantly reduce class sizes for the health and safety of both our students and staff.  As a result, the amount of teacher daily planning time has been affected.  What has not changed is elementary teacher’s need for time together to collaborate to provide the best education possible for our kindergarten through fourth grade students.

Now more than ever daily planning time is essential to ensure every opportunity is available for all students. Therefore, we are instituting early release of elementary students at 2:30pm on Wednesdays to provide elementary teachers the time they need. Early release is not effective immediately but will begin September 23rd to allow families time to make childcare arrangements.
