A WORD FROM THE PRINCIPAL
October 12, 2020
This past Thursday, the Franklin County School Board approved for schools to transition to Plan B for the second quarter which means that students can return at 50% capacity on an A/B schedule. Under A/B, students can attend in person two days a week and remote learning three days.
Right now, our school is planning for students to return for Plan B. You should have received a survey via email that will provide us with valuable information to plan appropriately. Please complete the survey as soon as possible.
Parents, you have the option of your child remaining virtual or having them report on an A/B schedule. If you are electing for your child to attend school in person, you will be notified next week whether they are in the A cohort or B cohort.
YES is a Title 1 School. Tomorrow night, at 6:30 pm we will hold our annual Title Meeting. This meeting will be held virtually and a link will be emailed to you tomorrow. Following the Title 1 meeting, the YES PTO will meet also virtually. We hope you can join us.
Be reminded that Wednesdays have now been designated as Asynchronous Days for remote learning. This will continue when we transition to Plan B. On Wednesdays, students will log into their Google Classroom to complete assignments or catch up on work. Teachers will take part in staff development, meetings, and planning. There will be no live instruction. Teachers will be available if students have questions. Attendance will be taken. Again, this begins this Wednesday, October 14.
I hope to see you soon.
Franklin County Schools Families:
Franklin County Schools is encouraging district families to complete applications for free and reduced meals, or indicate their intention to purchase school meals, by Monday, August 31st.
Taking action now to apply prior to the deadline will help determine the breadth of the district’s meal service, as well as its potential structure and delivery system logistics beginning Tuesday, September 1st. Based on current state guidance, students who qualify for reduced meals for the 2020-21 school year will actually receive meals free of charge.
“Having access to an affordable, nutritious school meal is a vital component that helps maximize the learning potential of thousands of our students,” said Dr. Rhonda Schuhler, Superintendent of Franklin County Schools. “We are committed to creating solutions to any obstacles that keep our students from participating in the district’s nutrition program, regardless of the plan for student instruction (A, B or C) under which we are operating.”
FCS’ families can apply online at www.fcschools.net by visiting the “Services” tab and clicking on the “Free and Reduced Lunch Application” link in the drop down menu, which is available here: Free and Reduced Lunch Application. Families can also visit their school to complete an application.
For those families who don’t qualify for free or reduced benefits, the cost for FCS’ nutritious breakfast is $1.25, while the cost for the fresh lunch is only $2.70. Parents can preorder and prepay by contacting their schools or emailing FCS Nutrition Services for more details.
