Dear TCPS Families,
Happy first day of Spring!
Since learning of the new CDC guidelines for social distancing in schools, and after speaking with Dr. Maguire and the Board of Education, our Administrative Team has been reviewing our recovery plan and our hybrid model to ensure a smooth transition to more in-person instruction.
Effective Monday, April 12, all current elementary in-person students (Pre-K through grade 5) will attend school four full days per week. Wednesdays will remain both asynchronous and synchronous learning pending individual school schedules.
As the CDC has not fully lifted the 6 ft. distancing for secondary schools, students in grades 6-12 currently attending school in-person will continue with their concurrent AA/BB day synchronous model four days per week, and Wednesdays will remain asynchronous. All schools will work to maintain 6 foot distancing in common areas and among staff.
We are revising transportation routes so that we can let families know of any changes to pick up and drop off times. In addition, we will be posting the capacity and rider numbers per bus by school. Outdoor activities must still comply with the Governor’s orders, but we will continue to pivot when we can and when it’s safe to do so.
As a reminder, schools are closed April 2 – April 9 for Spring Break. Thank you for your support and patience, and stay safe, stay healthy, stay hopeful and stay tuned!
Kelly L. Griffith, Ed.D.
We are back in full swing in our classrooms and on our athletic fields! I hope you’ll come out and support our Fall athletes at Easton High and St. Michaels High!This week some of our students joined me in participating in the county’s September 11th Commemoration here in downtown Easton. This is always a very somber and reflective event, and our students did a fantastic job.
I have LOVED being back in our school buildings with all of our students and staff these last few days! A terrific group of new teachers and Instructional Assistants has joined our outstanding team of educators; our Operations Team has worked hard to make sure that our buildings are SPARKLING; and our Transportation Team is back on the road to ensure our children arrive at school safely!
