Due to required student and staff quarantines and COVID-related illnesses, we must keep Bradford, Indian Trail and Lincoln virtual the week of Sept. 28. Students at each of these schools will be expected to log in for classes at their scheduled time from Monday, Sept. 28, through Friday, Oct. 2, in order to be marked present.
Thankfully, we are able to offer virtual learning during these high-impact times because we are allowing staff who are close contacts and required to self-quarantine to teach virtually from home during the pandemic. We also have other certified staff, such as instructional coaches and teacher consultants, who have been repurposed as classroom teachers as needed. This helps alleviate the negative effects the virus has on student learning because it allows us to provide a continuity of learning in the absence of in-person learning.
We know how frustrating this is for some of our families, but we appreciate your understanding in knowing that we must make adjustments in order to serve our students. Together we will get through this.
