COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES AND STUDENTS

Health Guidelines | Distance Learning | Free Internet | Meal Access | Reopening Plans

Over the past few weeks, we have read our staff and family surveys and developed a plan to begin getting students back into our buildings. It is our intention to begin bringing our youngest and most vulnerable students into the building, through the following steps that we’re calling Phase 1 of reopening:

  • October 19: A small group of high school students will return for specialized instruction and/or key related services. 
  • November 2: Kindergarten students who opt for in-person instruction will return along with a small group of elementary school students with disabilities and English Language Learners. 
  • November 9: 1st grade students who opt for in-person instruction will return along with a small group of middle school students with disabilities and English Language Learners. 

Students in grades 2 through 12 will remain in distance learning mode through quarter 2. We expect to be able to open more in-person options across those grades beginning in January.

Beginning October 2, we will ask K-1 families to select their preferences for the second quarter. The survey completion deadline is October 13. Anyone who doesn’t complete the survey by October 13 will remain in distance-learning mode for quarter 2.

We plan to share a final decision for reopening by October 16 and to be able to share in-person learning schedules with families by October 23.

As you consider what is best for your family, we want to provide you with an overview of the safety measures we’re considering for in-person school. CLICK HERE to view our plans, and visit the “Health and Safety Protocols” section below for additional information.

We’re so thankful for the resilience and support our families and staff have shown through this pandemic and we look forward to getting through this together.

Does the work continue? Yes, in a new way.

  • This is a possibility, and we are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools. The state legislature passed a bill waiving the 180 instructional day requirement. We will update all our families as soon as we have more information.

  • The school will reach back out to you with a date/time for pickup of all remaining materials. Please do not attempt to stop by the school before that time.

  • Our team is working on a plan for continued remote learning should that be necessary. These plans would be communicated through school principals and leadership teams to families and students.

  • It is likely grades for the year will be based off of Q1, Q2 and Q3 and not include Q4 grades. We are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools.

  • We are currently waiting on guidance from the State Board and MNPS on promotion requirements. We are prioritizing working with our seniors at this time to ensure they have the credits they need to graduate on time.

  • We are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools.

  • Reach out to the Director of Operations or Principal at your school.

  • Right now, online learning assignments are optional and not being graded. Teachers are still providing feedback to students on all turned in assignments. These assignments and feedback will help prevent learning loss during these weeks of closure.

  • The College Board has announced that all AP assessments will be taken at home. All Collegiate students should now have Chromebooks and will be able to take the exams online. You’ll also have the option to write your responses by hand and submit a photo. The College Board will support students through exam day with testing date options and free resources.

  • We are committed to providing services to students during this period. These services include regular check-ins with a learning specialist, small group lessons via Zoom, and providing differentiated assignments. Students should also be receiving Speech and Language, OT, and PT services through our provider, Project Play. If you have a student who receives any of these services and you have not heard from Project Play, please contact your child’s teacher.
