At the special board meeting Friday, July 24, 2020, the USD 398 approved a revised district calendar with a start date of September 9, 2020. Reasons for starting later consisted of 1) hoping for COVID-19 cases in the county to subside, 2) allows professional development days throughout the year to be placed before the start for teachers to prepare for Remote Learning that may/will occur in their classrooms, and 3) allow for items for addressing technology and safety items that are on back order to arrive.
Information will be forthcoming since the starting date has been set and information from the state is being processed. Here are a few of the upcoming news articles to look for;
- Enrollment remains on August 5th @ PBHS: 8 am to Noon/1pm to 5pm/6pm to 8pm, and on August 6th; 8am to Noon
- The update on sports (right now they are scheduled to start on schedule with some restrictions).
- USD 398 will be providing Remote Learning. We will cover the difference from this past spring’s homebound learning.
- What the guidelines and procedures that will be in place to provide a safe environment of our students in each building.
These are just a few of the many things that will be addressed. As you are well aware, there have been a lot of changes to keep up with. Be sure to check back with the news on the district web site for updates and information.
