Winter Break will be extended through January 8th. SCSS will reevaluate conditions at that time. For more details and information, please visit the SCSS website for the official press release.
Per the Superintendent:
At this time after consulting with the school principals and DPH staff we think it would be best to extend the winter break for students through Friday, Jan 8th. Staff would report to work to plan and prepare for the coming weeks. Friday we will reassess to see if we can go forward with our current in-class/virtual plan. If conditions do not improve then we would have the parents pick up materials if needed on Jan. 8th for virtual/distance learning for the following week. Parents please continue to contact your school and provide them with information about positive cases and exposures. This will help us to have information to guide us moving forward. Our district wide virtual/distance learning plan will be a week at a time. Once conditions improve we would go back to our original in-class/virtual learning plan. If we do need to move forward with more virtual school after the end of this week each individual school will roll out their own directions and plans for virtual learning. If you have further concerns or questions please contact your school’s principal.
Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
