Elementary (K-5)

  • Are elementary students going to be expected to be sitting in front of a computer for a solid time block of 4 hours?

  • Will students who selected the virtual option still need the supplies listed on the school supply list on the website?

  • There is an 'assumption' of young children that is made that they don't contract COVID as much, and they recover, but are they carriers? We should not be basing opening on assumptions but with many studies.

  • Why is it ok to risk teachers and students lives, health, and mental well being with 100% of students in K-3 when they just have "less" of a change of getting it and transmitting it? It may be less of a chance and it may be important for younger students to get face to face instruction, but I feel the health of students and staff is more important.

  • My student likes to hug their teacher? What will the policy be on hugs?

  • What will specials classes look like?

  • Will there be any back-to-school events and will parents be allowed to walk their child to class on the first day?

  • Live instruction may not always be viable for working parents on virtual learning days, will a recording be available as well?

  • What will recess look like? Will students be allowed to use playground equipment and play together?

  • What will the average class size be in elementary?
