Wakefield Forest Elementary

 

Dear Wakefield Forest Families,

As Dr. Brabrand communicated on Friday, June 26, 2020 families will have two options for instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. Families need to designate their choice by July 10, 2020. If no response is received, the default is for students to participate in the in-person instruction. We will be working to schedule siblings who attend in person on the same days of the week to support family planning. I know that you are being faced with a difficult choice, and at the same time may still have many questions that we do not have the answers to right now. Please know that whatever you choose, we will work diligently to support you and your child.

As we plan for the 2020-21 school year, we would like to consider constructive feedback from our families on the distance learning implemented during spring 2020. Many changes are already planned for the fall, including smaller class sizes and increased direct instruction. Please complete the attached survey by July 17, 2020 if you would like to provide feedback.

 As more information becomes available about next school year, we will share that as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Sharyn Prindle
Principal
