Dear SMFCSD Elementary Families,
As a follow up to the recent letter from Dr. Rosas dated July 18, 2020, I am writing to ask each family with elementary-aged students to review the descriptions of the Fall Reopening and make a choice for each of those students.
As you know, all students will begin the year in Full Time Distance Learning, and as soon as our community COVID-19 statistics allow, we will move along our Continuum of Learning Options to offer a Hybrid Model for our elementary students. Therefore, we need your input at this time so we know which families will choose to have their elementary-aged students continue with Distance Learning, and which families will select a Hybrid Model when health conditions allow.
Upon making the decision, please make a selection for each elementary aged child in your family in our Parent Portal using instructions found on our Family Fall Selection Resource Page. You will also update annual student information at this time.
We request your decision be updated in the Parent Portal by 11:59PM on Monday, July 27, 2020. Students will be placed in the Hybrid model if no selection is made.
