Dear Fieldcrest Community, Over the past few days our COVID numbers have dropped off in places and risen in others. While I expect November 30th and December 1st to "appear" better, it is important to recognize that if symptoms surface in the 4-7 day window post Thanksgiving, those who are learning and teaching in-person will possibly be exposed before the symptoms are known. In light of these current health risks, we will continue with remote learning November 30th through December 4th.
In order to make sure all students receive a nutritious, no-cost breakfast and lunch, our kitchen and transportation staff will work together to prepare and deliver meals. In-town students that do not ride a bus may pick up meals at the school closest to their home.
Rural Route meals will be delivered to the home and left in a convenient and safe location. Please social distance and allow drivers/monitors to stay safe. Delivering hundreds of meals is a large undertaking, please be patient.
- Meals delivered: Monday, 11/30 between 9:45am and 12:00pm (2 days of meals, 11/30 and 12/1)
- Meals delivered: Wednesday, 12/2 between 9:45am and 12:00pm (3 days of meals, 12/2, 12/3, and 12/4)
- For in-town students, meals can be picked up on 11/30 and 12/2 from 10:00-11:00am in front of the school that is most convenient for the family.
We as staff and parents have witnessed the move to remote learning may be difficult and at times, frustrating. As remote learning evolves, our faculty and administration continue to explore best practices and policies for supporting your student. Please continue to be kind to all who care for our students, the staff wants what is safe and engaging as we navigate through these changing times. If you have concerns or questions about your child's remote instruction, please contact the teacher via email.
Our planned return date is Monday, December 7th. This date is subject to change based on the number of quarantines, positive case numbers, and availability of staff. In order to keep all students and staff healthy after the 12/7 return, please keep your student home if he/she experiences any symptoms, is awaiting test results, or has had exposure to a household member with COVID-like symptoms. While the difficulty of this task is fully understood, we implore every family to follow the guidance above in order to allow healthy students to return to in-person instruction. Please continue to notify the school office of any health concerns.
