At the February 2021 School Board meeting Canon-McMillan School District voted to increase in-person instruction for the 7-12 grade levels. Specifically, it will increase in-person instruction to four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). Open enrollment for in person instruction for grades 7-12 will be from February 26 - March 2. On March 8, grades 7, 8, 11 and 12 will return to four days a week of in-person instruction. The district’s pandemic team recommended this week before the switch to allow teachers and administration to make appropriate preparations based on the enrollment rates for in person learning. The district wants to stress that with this increased in-person instruction, social distancing will not likely be possible in all areas of the buildings and on buses. The district will continue to sanitize and clean daily. Grades 9 and 10 will return to four days of in-person instruction on March 22. Grades 9 and 10 will remain in the hybrid platform until then.
Grades K-6 are currently offering four days a week of in-person instruction and will continue to do so. Communication regarding program selection for the 4th nine weeks in grade k-6 is forthcoming. K-6 families who want to remain with the current programing option will not be required to re-enroll. If there are any questions related to these changes, parents and guardians are encouraged to contact their building’s principal.
The school board also approved of reinstating the positions for the high school’s spring musical, as well as the school calendar for the 2021-2022 school year.
All plans are subject to change based on communal rates of transmission, positive cases within the school and state mandates.
