  • Choose your student's learning model for the Second Semester

    We have been fortunate to have several learning models available this school year to match the needs of our students and families during the COVID-19 pandemic: Distance Learning and In-Person Learning. We appreciate the patience and understanding from our families during these uncertain times.

    During the last several months, we have seen success with our students and families becoming more comfortable with online platforms such as Microsoft Teams. Also, through the In-Person model, staff, students and families have been successful wearing masks, following physical distancing requirements, and practicing frequent hand washing.

    Our school community has also learned many things during this first semester including the impact of changing models on a student’s education. Consistency is important for student learning; consistency supports routines as well as teacher -student relationships

    As we prepare for the start of the second semester on Monday, January 4, we want to share the following important information with you:   

    1. We will honor the request of our families to remain in their child’s current learning model (Distance or In-person). If you would like to keep your child on their current learning model for the second semester, please click on the link below and complete the questionnaire.
    2. If you would like to change the current learning model for your child for the second semester, please also click on the link below that will allow you to share with us your choice.

    We are asking families to complete the questionnaire (link below) by Wednesday December 9th. This information will be sent directly to the school and will allow us to better plan for the second semester. Once our families decide on a learning model for the second semester, students will remain on that learning model for the entire second semester. Families with more than one child will need to complete an individual questionnaire for each child.

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the questionnaire. If you have questions or concerns, please contact 689-2500 or email us at anderson@washoeschools.net.

Agradecemos la paciencia y la comprensión de nuestras familias durante estos tiempos de incertidumbre.

    Durante los últimos meses, hemos visto el éxito con nuestros estudiantes y familias cada vez más cómodos con el programa en línea como Microsoft Teams. Además, a través del modelo en persona, el personal, los estudiantes y las familias han tenido éxito en seguir la guía para el COVID-19, incluyendo el uso de máscaras, seguir los requisitos de distancia física y practicar el lavado de manos frecuentemente.

    Nuestra comunidad escolar también ha aprendido muchas cosas durante este primer semestre, incluido el impacto de los modelos cambiantes en la educación de un estudiante. La consistencia es importante para el aprendizaje de los estudiantes; La consistencia apoya a las rutinas, así como las relaciones entre el maestro-estudiante.
