School planning is well underway for the fall. Amidst the pandemic and planning for recovery, Roseville Area Schools is looking for feedback and input into some upcoming decisions. The following are options for Central Park families to give us your thoughts and to ask questions:
Facebook Live meeting for those who prefer to meet in Nepali will be held Wednesday, August 5 at 4:30 pm. Here is the link .
Facebook Live meeting for our families who prefer to meet in Spanish will be Thursday, August 6 at 4:00 pm. Here is the link .
Facebook Live meeting for our families who prefer to meet in Karen will be Thursday, August 6 at 6:00 pm. Here is the link .
Zoom meeting for those who prefer to meet in English will be held Thursday, August 6 at 7:00 pm. Here is the link.
The password, if needed, is Townhall.
You will receive a family survey from RAS mid-week. These meetings can answer any questions about the survey and will be open for discussion on some of the options before us. In this ever changing and new way of doing school we may not have all of the answers, but the Ms. Berkas, Central Park Principal, will listen and gather feedback from families. We are in this together.
We know for certain all parents will have the option for continuing online learning during this time and until we are able to safely fully reopen our schools.
If families chose to send students in-person our blended model will likely have the following components:
K and Grade 1 will likely attend school four days a week with distance learning on the remaining one day a week.
Grades 2-6 will likely attend school in-person two days a week with three days supported distance learning; or possibly student will meet four days in-person with the following week being all distance learning. What option best meets the needs of your family situation?
Dividing in-person groups of students in half will ensure smaller groups so students will have a better opportunity to socially distance. What considerations will matter most to you when classrooms are divided for in-person learning?
We know there may need to be a flow between the blended and online model with the unpredictable future of the Coronavirus. What considerations will matter most to you when those decisions are made?
The in-person school day may need to be shortened as much as 90 minutes to allow teachers to support both in-person and distance learning. What considerations will matter most to you about that decision?
Ms. Berkas would like to listen to concerns and thoughts as families sort through these decisions, and she will share any information collected from our meetings with our district leadership as we continue to work on our plans for returning.
We are privileged to be a part of such an outstanding school community, and we hope to see you at one of the meetings.
