I would like to provide you with an update regarding tomorrow, Tuesday, June 29.
There will be no change for secondary schools – the schedules/plans
communicated to secondary students and families will remain in place for
Tuesday, June 29.
Elementary Schools. Elementary schools will be in session*; however, the day will allow for early dismissal for elementary students (12:00 noon). Please prepare for your children to be dismissed from school tomorrow at 12:00 noon.
hope that having elementary schools in-session until 12:00 noon will
provide students the opportunity to have their final day at school and
collect any remaining personal items and school-related material. This
will also provide for students and staff to say goodbye and end the year
on a positive note.
As elementary schools may have activities
planned for Tuesday, June 29, principals will be following up with
families and sending school-specific messaging later today.
- Schools with a pre-scheduled Pro-D day on Tuesday will continue to have Tuesday as a non-instructional day.
students and families in the Temporary Elementary Transition Support
Option and Hospital Homebound Instruction Program, remote instruction
will continue as planned tomorrow in the morning and/or afternoon, as
per usual schedules.
I acknowledge changes to school
schedules have an impact on families. However, this extreme heat event
is one that we have not experienced before, despite a year of
unprecedented events, and the decisions we make are always with the
health and safety of our students and staff top of mind.
