Good evening, Deer Park Family,
As you know, students that have been in-person attendees to the Junior/Senior High School will be temporarily switching to remote learning, starting tomorrow, October 23rd. This remote learning model will last through November 6th, and, starting November 9th, students will return to the previously-used Hybrid Learning Model through the Thanksgiving break. For more information, please see this press release from earlier today
To clarify, this will only affect those students who have been regularly attending Deer Park Jr/Sr High School in-person. Any student who was already enrolled in the Apex or Edgenuity online learning formats will not change what they are already doing.
Tomorrow, our building will be open only for students to pick up materials as needed. Any student who needs to go to their locker must enter the front entrance of the school building between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., have their temperature scanned at our front office, and then gather their belongings from their locker before leaving. Please see the details in the "Upcoming Schedule" section below for more information.
We know that this change will be a challenge. This is true not only for families, but also for our staff. Please know that while we will continue to hold our students to high expectations throughout this process, we will also be holding ourselves to even higher expectations so that we may help our students succeed to their highest levels.
Principal, Deer Park Jr/Sr High School
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23RD
Tomorrow will be a remote learning day that will match the Wednesday remote learning days that were used while in our Hybrid Learning Model earlier this school year. For more information, please click here.
OCTOBER 26TH - NOVEMBER 6TH
Details will be sent soon to students and families with more information about the schedule for the remaining days of remote learning.
Overall, students will need to be available to be online every day. This is so that students can maintain consistency as much as possible in their educational process while in a remote learning setting.
While students are not attending the school building each day, we ask our families to continue to be diligent regarding safety procedures. As we know, our ability to control the spread of Covid-19 depends on all of us following the guidelines of the CDC. We thank you for your patience, cooperation, and dedication to our students and their education!
