January 5th HS Update

Dear Students, Parents, and Caregivers,

We are excited to have students returning to in-person learning at East Central High School. Hopefully, your students are ready to come back and see their teachers and classmates!

High school students will begin returning on January 19th. First, grades 6-8 will come back. Two weeks later, on February 1st, we will have students in grades 9-11 return to school. Then, on February 15th, students in grade 12 return. By February 15th, all 7-12 grade students will be back at school.

We will not have school on January 14th or 15th for students in grades 7-12. These days will be used by teachers to prepare for students to return to school. Students are strongly encouraged to finish up any late work during those days!

Things will look a little different upon return. We will return in a block schedule. The schedule will vary slightly from the hybrid block for a couple reasons. First, all students in grades 7-12 will eventually be in the building together. Second, we will go back to having two lunch periods, one for grades 7 and 8 and one for grades 9-12. We will maintain Wednesday as a distance learning day. A copy of the daily schedule is included below.

Students will be able to use their lockers to store their winter clothes and other items. We ask that students transition quickly to each of their classes and do not spend time grouped up in the hallway.

Face masks are required for all students, covering their nose and mouths. This will be strictly enforced. Water fountains will continue to be turned off, students may keep a water bottle in their locker, they can fill their water bottles using the hydration station. There will be no drinks or food in the classrooms.

Students will also need to maintain a social distance with a minimum of three feet. Six feet is ideal for social distancing and is encouraged with the realization that this may not always be feasible.

Please feel free to contact me at 320-245-6015 with any questions. I am usually available from 7:30AM-4:00PM Monday through Friday.
