We are currently making plans to begin a normal school year following our current school calendar. The first day of school is planned to be August 12, 2020. We are also adapting schedules and increasing our cleaning and personal hygiene activities to promote the healthiest instructional environment possible.
It is impossible to elaborate on all of the details regarding our planning in this letter, but please know that our goal is to provide the healthiest and highest quality instructional environment feasible for your children. We plan to follow the current Alabama Department of Health Guidelines, but in some instances, it may be difficult to maintain absolute social distancing at all times while providing high-quality instruction.
We are also planning for online instruction if we need to transition from face-to-face instruction to online instruction. In addition, the Alabama State Department of Education is developing a full-time virtual offering that allows students to learn online if parents choose to keep them at home for the upcoming school year. While the students will have support from teachers, it will be different from what you experienced in the spring. Also, full-time virtual students will not have access to some electives. The survey below is designed to elicit responses from you in order to assist us in our planning for the upcoming school year. Please give serious thought to the questions in the survey and respond as soon as you are able. Please complete a separate survey for each child you have in the Piedmont City School District.
We appreciate your patience during this process and assure you that we are working tirelessly to provide the best education for your children.
