Dear Boone County Families & Employees,
From the onset of this pandemic, three priorities emerged as the central part of every conversation regarding reopening our schools:
A. Effectively educate our students,
B. Keeping our students, employees, and communities safe, and
C. The effect of the pandemic on our families and jobs.
After listening to concerns, gathering input and feedback, speaking with many stakeholders, holding a public forum -- I have given these issues considerable reflection. My recommendation for providing more in-person instruction to our students is as follows:
1. To provide 4 days of in-person instruction for both A & B groups each week Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
2. Wednesday will be maintained as a support and intervention day for our students receiving virtual instruction.
3. To begin this change to our instructional model on Thursday, October 29th. We will communicate to parents the week prior on Thursday October 22nd, 2020 the status of our instructional model for the following week.
