What about school re-opening in the fall of 2020? The link below will take you to a video from State Superintendent Reykdal where he tackles some of the questions regarding returning to school in the Fall of 2020. The presentation was given June 20 - please remember that as new information becomes available changes are possible regarding what school will look like in the Fall of 2020. The District will continue to prepare based on the most current information made available to the administration and the Board of Directors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WotQhMrVzZw&feature=youtu.be
Students who have checked out chrome books may keep them until school resumes. We ask that everyone take good care of them, contact someone if they are damaged or you have a problem. If you want to turn in the chrome book bring them to multi purpose room during meal time or the District Office between 9-12. We hope students take advantage of this opportunity to continue learning. Thank you to the community for supporting technology through levy funding.
Although the County may be in Stage 3 all School District indoor facilities remain closed to the public, including the gym, multi purpose room and weight room.
Good Tuesday afternoon to everyone We had hoped to receive some guidance from the state, Governor and State Superintendent of Schools, regarding returning to school next fall yesterday. What we received instead was a note explaining they are still working on guidance and are waiting for information from the Department of Health and other agencies. They hope to share information with all school districts by the end of the week. While this is disappointing, it is also a message illustrating the many complex pieces returning to school will bring and the desire to provide best possible options. The District understands the need for employees and families to have answers to the questions the fall of 2020 brings. Until we receive options and guidelines the state will support we would only be guessing about what options we should consider and how to manage the operational questions that may come with the options. It has become clear no matter what option is selected there will be some who feel uncomfortable or even angry about the new school year. We need you to know that while we can respect your frustrations and strong opinions the District’s actions must follow any guidelines given to us. While there will be opportunities for local districts to make some decisions there will be some directives required of us. The result for the Dayton School District will reflect our commitment to our student’s education and our willingness to collaborate with parents and community within the parameters given to the District. Working together, as always, Dayton will find a way to provide for the needs of students and families. Respectfully Douglas Johnson, outgoing Superintendent Dayton School District And Guy Strot, incoming Superintendent Dayton School District
