We are excited about the possibilities ahead for all. In previous communications that you have received from our Superintendent, it has been shared that DCSD will open with Hybrid learning starting August 17th with an orientation week. Teachers will be sending an additional email with sign up for orientation days. During orientation teachers will have the opportunity to build relationships with their students, reinforce technology skills that will ensure success for the on-line portion of the program, and teach new skills and procedures to ensure student safety. While I am sure that many questions remain, it is my hope that this communication will provide you with some clarity. Additionally, more communication will follow. This will continue to be a work in progress, but I appreciate your support in advance as we work together to maintain a safe learning environment for all.
Cohort Schedule: As previously shared, students will be on a cohort schedule. Students in Cohort A will come to school on Monday and Wednesday and students in Cohort B will come to school on Tuesday and Thursday. All students will do e-learning from home on their non-cohort days and on Fridays.
School hours: The school day is from 9:10am - 4:00pm. Doors will open at 8:55 for our rolling start, like in the past few years. For our Kiss and Go families, please do not drop students off before 8:55am. If you are here before that time, please have your students wait in the car until a staff member is there to let them out. Please make sure walkers are not arriving to school before 8:55.
Lunch/Recess: Students will attend the lunch window which corresponds to their grade level. Students will have access to hand washing prior to lunch or the use of hand sanitizing stations. Physical distancing will be practiced in the cafeteria. There will be clearly marked spaces for students waiting in line, as well as for safe distance seating. The table will then be disinfected by school personnel prior to the start of the next cohort. There will be class recess equipment, which will be sanitized daily and reserved only for the class to which it is assigned. Students will continue to maintain social distancing even while engaging in recreation and equipment use.
Bathrooms: Students will use the bathroom closest to their classroom. Two students will be allowed to use the bathroom at a time. There will be socially distanced dots outside of the bathroom for students to wait if necessary.
Visitors: In the past, we have enjoyed having families visit our classrooms, volunteer in our building, and join your student for lunch in the cafeteria. However, this year for the safety of all, we will not have our building open for visitors. If you must come to the building to leave an item or for a specific reason, we are asking that you call the main office in advance. This policy is a district expectation and will help keep our building safe. Thank you for your understanding. If you need to pick up your child early, please call the office and we will bring your child out to you! How’s that for service!! :)
