Reopening Messages from Administration - August 11, 2020
With Governor Cuomo announcing Friday that schools may proceed with in-class instruction, we have shifted from a planning phase to an implementation phase. Please review letters crafted by Superintendent O'Brien, Principal Jorgensen and Principal Podolak related to our reopening plans by clicking here. We will continue to communicate these plans as we move forward.
Reopening Plan Letter From Superintendent O'Brien
The work on devising a plan for the upcoming school year continues and Port Byron Central School District wanted to take this opportunity to share some more of the details.
We will have two pathways for students:
- One is to come to school five days for direct and indirect instruction from our teachers.
- Option two would be to learn from home using the resources found on teacher’s Google Classrooms.
Full Reopening Plan
The district has released its full Reopening Plan for Fall 2020. The Port Byron plan is for the entire school district. It was developed with four principles in mind. These guiding principles were devised by the leadership team in early July as we began the process of creating the best learning opportunities for students while adhering to health and safety protocols from federal and state agencies for upcoming school year. They represent the bedrock of the work we accomplished this past school year while facing the challenges of COVID-19.
