Dear Frontier Central School Community,
The Reopening of Our Schools document is available for your review. Please keep in mind that this is a draft document that will evolve as we receive additional information and guidance from the Governor, the Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control, the Department of Education, and the Erie County Department of Health. Our subcommittees will continue their work to finalize the assurances that you will see in this document. This is just one hurdle. The details and planning for the implementation of any model and consideration is the most important part of our work as we plan for September.
The title of our Reopening Plan is Reimaging Teaching, Learning, and Supporting our Students and Families. We all realize that the 2020 - 2021 academic year will be challenging, and it hasn't even begun. We think you would agree that this is not how any of us imagined the upcoming year to look. That being said, it is our collective challenge to Reimagine education in the Frontier Central School District.
You will notice considerations/options within plans (traditional, hybrid, virtual). There are a few options to consider as we await further survey information from our school community. This plan offers no perfect solution and no answer at this time.
The survey to parents will go out after the Board of Education meeting, next week. The purpose of delaying the survey, the results of which will craft the next steps of our work, is to collect and process further guidance from the Governor and feedback from the Board meeting. We may add, or change the way our questions are worded so that you can make the best choice for your family based on the most recent information and guidelines from New York State.
Please know that completing the survey next week is extremely important moving forward. Your participation is critical to our planning process.
Thank you in advance for your patience and support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs. Makowski and Mr. Sikorski
