Dear Fieldcrest Families,
Our community is experiencing a growing number of COVID19 cases and quarantines due to close contact exposures. While the positive cases occurred outside of school hours, we know that due to the gathering place nature of our school system, we are again feeling the effects. We now have 3 positive cases and our quarantine number is now at 75. Our staff members have done their due diligence in tracking student movements and greatly reducing the close contact interactions amongst students and staff.
In an effort to provide the best possible instruction for all students in the appropriate environment, we have made the decision to move all MIDDLE SCHOOL students to full remote instruction effective Friday, November 13th through Tuesday, November 24th.
Thanksgiving break will take place from November 25-27th. The tentative return to in-person instruction will be Monday, November 30th. All other Fieldcrest schools (Primary, Intermediate, High), will remain open for in-person instruction at this time. Bus Transportation will run as normal.
Remote instruction for the middle school will require that students be available during regular school hours. This will include daily attendance checks with 1st period staff and academic Zoom sessions following the current school schedule. Please be patient on Friday, November 13th as it may take some time for staff and students to move from in-person to remote learning.
Middle school families in need of breakfast and lunch can pick up meals from 10:00am through 11:00am daily in the front parking lot at Fieldcrest Primary, Fieldcrest Intermediate, and Fieldcrest Middle. Only a healthy, non-quarantined family member should pick up meals.
The school office remains open in support of students, parents, and the community.
In closing, the fall semester of school has been a positive experience. Students and staff have worked well together to implement procedures in providing the safest, engaging learning environment possible. This decision is meant to ensure that the long term viability of In-person instruction is possible. Thank you all for the incredible support!
