Welcome Back, Second & Third Graders!

Rain can’t stop the excitement and joy of our second and third graders! Nearly 1,100 second- and third-grade students returned to in-person learning today for the first time in more than a year.

We are thrilled to see these students learning in person. They are joining students in PreK, kindergarten, first grade and special education classrooms in hybrid learning. 

About 45% of our elementary students are choosing to come to school in person. They are on a hybrid schedule: in school half-days, four days a week, and learning from home the rest of the school week. Our other students are continuing in fully remote learning from home.

We have many people to thank for making today possible, including our teachers, bus drivers, office staff, paraeducators, principals, and many others. We also thank our students and families for opting to learn in person.

In two weeks, fourth- and fifth-grade students will begin in-person learning, followed by middle and high school students on April 19. We can't wait to welcome you all back to school soon!
