Remote Learning Follow-Up Parent Survey
Dear St. Michael’s Parents,
I hope your families are enjoying the early days of summer break. Thank you, again, for the many ways you partnered with and supported St M, your children and and the entire community. Your support of St. Michael’s, particularly during our recent Remote Learning program, was incredibly helpful and appreciated.
Now that the 2019/20 school year is complete and we prepare for next year, we’d like your feedback again via the above survey link. As before, through a variety of multiple choice and open-ended questions, we’ve tried to keep it short, sweet, and very purposeful. A few minutes should suffice and responses are anonymous. We also invite you to contact any of us listed at the end of the survey, including myself, the division directors and members of the Board of Directors.
On May 28 you heard that we’re planning for three scenarios for the 2020-21 school year - - that’s still the case. On June 9, Governor Northam unveiled his plans to reopen schools aligned within his phase by phase reopening plans for the Commonwealth. Our ability to fully reopen for all students hinges on what phase the City of Richmond is in at the end of August and our ability to meet physical distancing and health/safety guidelines. At this time, only phase 3 or beyond phase 3 would permit St M to fully reopen - - and most certainly, with physical distancing guidelines that dictate class schedules and how many students we can accommodate at any given time.
Our COVID-19 School Reopening Team continues to lead our efforts to fully understand the phases, the guidelines and to prepare a variety of schedules and protocols for the coming year. We work continuously and meet weekly (if not daily!) to update each other on our progress. Through similar video messages delivered every-other summer Friday by yours truly, we intend to provide regular updates to all parents. Next edition will be on or before July 3.
In advance, thank you for taking a few minutes to complete the survey. Best wishes for a wonderful, healthy, and safe summer.
I’ll be back in touch again on or before July 3.
Head of School
