August 12,2020 - Parent Communication: Building Reopening Videos & Zoom Meetings

Hello, Rocket Families.

Last week we released our Parent/Guardian FAQS on the School Reopening website. If you have not had a chance to read through those, we highly encourage our families to do so. Please read below for the latest updates. 

Building-Specific Reopening Videos

Today, we have shared our building-specific reopening videos on the School Reopening website, as well as the At-a-Glance Elementary and Secondary Infographics. We hope the videos provide you with more insight into what traditional in-person school will look like for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Building-Specific Parent/Guardian Zoom Meetings

Each building will be holding parent/guardian Zoom meetings to provide a school opening overview and an opportunity to ask building-specific questions. The Zoom meeting links will be provided in a separate communication to you. Please see the schedule below. If you are not able to attend a meeting, a recording will be made available on the School Reopening website.

District Events/Activities

Many of you have asked about our traditional new school year activities and programs, such as back-to-school nights and orientations. We are working on providing these events in a different and safe manner while adhering to the safety plans. Your child’s building and/or teachers will be reaching out with more information and updates on these activities.

Health & Safety Plans Update

The Spring Grove Area School District School Board approved changes to the Health and Safety Plans, specifically the revised order on mandatory face coverings and the limiting of spectators/attendees at public events so that our School District can remain in compliance with the updated direction from the state.  The changes are to comply with updated wording in state and federal guidance. No other operational changes were proposed to the reopening plans. The Health and Safety Plans can be found HERE.

We will continue to send you timely updates and information leading up to the new school year. Please continue to check your emails. We look forward to the start of school on Monday, August 24th! 

Sincerely,

Dr. George W. Ioannidis
Superintendent
