Together Again: Responsive and Resilient
Looking Ahead to 2021-22
The 20-21 school year taught us that our community has the courage and fortitude to adapt and thrive in times of adversity. Through the dedicated efforts of students, staff members, and families, we were able to offer in-person learning throughout the school year without a single transmission of COVID-19 on either of our campuses.
Last year taught us about letting go of assumptions and the power of pausing and extending grace to ourselves, our families, our colleagues, to the people who kept essential services going, and to our neighbors near and far. The ways in which our students, staff, and families worked together, day after day, not only advanced the academic progress of our learners, it nurtured the kindness, empathy, and compassion we see as an essential part of educating the engaged citizens our world needs.
Although we expect that the 21-22 year will come very close to resembling a typical school year, it is too early to make definitive statements about what health policies from this year can be dropped and what may have to continue.
Our goal is to keep school operations and instruction calibrated to public health conditions in NC, specifically in Guilford County. We will continue to rely on the guidance, consideration, and mandates established by national, local, and state health experts and leaders, our medical advisors, and our school health team. Regular monitoring of the overall health and well-being of our school community will also be considered independently.
Throughout the summer, we will provide updates about the coming school year. Look for our first update by July 15, 2021.
