Update on November 9, 2020 Return to School Hybrid Model

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community:

As we move forward with our reopening plan and students returning to school in a hybrid model, I would like to thank everyone for their dedication to student success. During these extremely difficult times our priority remains student achievement and making every effort to connect with students and parents. While we will continue with the Concrete Virtual Academy curriculum we are pleased to see and assist our students in person. By staying with this instructional model, we can make a seamless transition to remote learning if needed.

As a reminder to everyone, students are required to wear masks and be seated in their designated locations. Concrete will be utilizing a cohort model at all levels to minimize exposure for both staff and students. We will conduct temperature checks prior to students getting on the bus or entering the building as a walk up. Everyone will be asked attestation questions as well. We have regimented cleaning protocols, and Wednesdays are designated as deep cleaning days. Please remind your child of the importance of hand washing and following the health department guidelines. We will have two separate groups of students: (1) Monday/Tuesday onsite group and (2) Thursday/Friday onsite group. There will be three days of asynchronous instruction for all students and two days of in-person instruction for all students. Classes will begin at 9:00am and end at 2:30 Elem/Secondary2:45pm on in-person days.

I continue to get daily updates from Skagit County Health Department and have reviewed our reopening plan with their officials. Our goal is to safely deliver the best educational options for our families and the Concrete community. We appreciate the support you have given us during the difficult times that we have all endured.  We look forward to seeing our students on November 9th. Principals will begin notifying parents of cohort assignments this week. If you have school specific questions please contact your child’s school office for assistance.

Welcome back Concrete students!!
