WSS Hybrid Model
Hello White Street School Families.

I am writing to inform you that Springfield Public Schools is making plans for a hybrid return-to-school this spring.

It’s important to note that this back-to-school option will depend on the public health situation at the time but right now, we are hoping for a phased-in approach beginning in March and going through April and May.

Students at White Street School would be scheduled to start phasing in in April (not March) due to their specific educational program.

During the week of 2/22-3//5 you will receive a phone call or email from your child's classroom teacher or paraprofessional. You will take a questionnaire. In the questionnaire you will be asked to submit a FINAL decision about whether your student will attend in person classes or continue completely remotely in the spring for the rest of the school year. PLEASE NOTE: the choice is either a HYBRID schedule (One week would be 3 days in school and 2 remote and the next week would be 2 days in school and 3 remote) OR remain fully remote as you are currently.

Between February 22 and March 10 please look for a phone call or communication from your child's classroom to participate in the questionnaire. You will not be able to change your mind after you submit this information so please make sure you carefully consider what is best for your student. We will need 100% participation from all families for all students in the questionnaire.

Also, we have posted a power point below that explains the health and safety protocols that will be put in place for back-to-school.

Please stay tuned for more information and clarity as we plan.

Thank you for being actively involved in your child's education this year (and always).
