Phase-In Schedule For Elementary Students Altered

September 9, 2020

Last night, the Deerfield Public Schools Board of Education approved the recommendation to move to a phased-in hybrid approach with a modified start date. This is for three reasons: 1) to survey parents about whether they plan to put their child(ren) on the hybrid path or keep them in full virtual learning; 2) to allow more time for questions from parents & staff to be answered and, 3) to allow building teams the opportunity to make class placement changes as needed.

Right now, the proposed re-entry dates are:

KINDERGARTEN -- Thursday, September 24th

1ST & 2ND GRADES -- Tuesday, September 29th

3RD GRADE -- Thursday, October 1st

4TH & 5TH GRADES -- Monday, October 5th

The intention remains for a middle school re-entry plan to be presented at the September 21st regular Board of Education meeting.

A survey will be going out to parents shortly asking them to declare their choice on hybrid or remote and will close on Monday, September 14.
