Happy New Year Home Works! families! A year ago, no one could have predicted the course of 2020. Now, as we enter 2021 we are both thankful and hopeful. While our current reality is not traditional, the ability to continue our partnership is a gift and we are thankful. I continue to have hope that 2021 will allow us the opportunity to welcome back students to school at some point.
Last month, most of you completed a survey indicating your child's preference for learning next semester. We sincerely appreciate your responses and feedback. As you can imagine, student preferences are varied. In addition to the survey, I have worked with our district leadership team and school nurse considering classroom space and scheduling options at our campus. All of these factors led to the incredibly difficult decision to remain in a distance learning model for the rest of this school year. Honestly, this is the most difficult decision I have made as the principal at Home Works!
While we can’t bring students on campus for in-person learning, our team is committed to ensuring that students are engaged with staff and peers, supporting their social emotional growth and academic growth. In addition, we are committed to providing parents the support they need to successfully homeschool their children. Included in this newsletter is a link to our semester 2 schedule. We have added classes and used feedback from our families to design a large variety of classes.
I wish everyone in our Home Works! Community the best for a healthy and happy new year. Thank you for letting our team serve your family.
Catheleen Scott, Principal
