The July 4th holiday is always a sign that “Back to School” season is right around the corner. By now, we hope you have reviewed our COVID-19 press release from June 25th. We have modified our school calendar, planned for numerous instructional/return models, met with local and state health officials, increased our technology, collaborated with other school systems around the state; however, the fact remains, we have an unpredictable pandemic that continues to interfere with every aspect of our day-to-day lives.


The last several months have been taxing on our economy, not to mention our physical, mental, and emotional health. We acknowledge no amount of planning, disinfecting, or precautions can remove all risks, ease all concerns, or erase the anxiety of resuming face-to-face instruction in schools.


Many have requested a detailed plan, which we will release by July 21st. This plan will be based on the latest health data and recommendations from all sources. We do want to affirm the health and safety of our students and staff is at the top of our list of considerations. The Lamar County School System will present various instructional models to address student learning, which will include both on and off-campus delivery. We are working hard to finalize these options, taking special consideration of our many challenges with internet and device access. We are committed to providing a rigorous learning experience for all students, regardless of the obstacles we face.

 

We ask parents to pay close attention to district and school announcements as we approach the 2020-21 school year. It is important that we maintain clear communication. Please ensure your contact information is correct as we begin the school year, and we encourage you to follow us on social media.

 

Expect information regarding Open House (which will include a virtual option) in the weeks ahead.

 

We look forward to working together to make the 2020-21 school year a tremendous success.
