Dear Williamstown Families,
I hope you have had a great start to the summer break and taken advantage of the wonderful weather we have experienced the past several days. This letter provides a brief update on where we are in terms of our Re-Entry Plan for the start of school and to solicit your feedback.
First, district personnel are meeting weekly with local and state officials to stay up to date on the guidance as it relates to the pandemic and starting school safely. Regular discussions are taking place between school and district leadership, as well as with the local Board of Education, as we prepare to welcome our students back to school. This continues to remain a fluid situation and we are doing our best to stay abreast of the ever-changing information as we organize our preparations.
At this time, we need to hear from our families. Please respond to the survey found at the following link. https://forms.gle/ypE1mJtxR6fcDpES9. It is not a long survey (only 6 questions) and shouldn’t take much time to complete. This information is crucial and will be utilized as we continue planning for the opening of school.
As of now, school is scheduled to begin on August 12, 2020. This date could be pushed back, but we definitely will not begin school earlier than August 12. As we continue to plan, we will keep you informed of our progress and will likely reach out again for further feedback as more guidance is released.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and concerns with us. It will definitely help us as we continue to plan for the upcoming school year. We appreciate your support and please know that our ultimate goal is to ensure the safety of our students while also selecting the best strategies to provide optimal learning experiences for all.
Take Care, Stay Safe, and Have Fun!
With Demon Pride,
Williamstown Independent Schools
