Dear Constellation Schools Families,

As we continue through this unprecedented school year, the challenges and uncertainties that we face continue as we enter 2021 and encounter the transmission of COVID-19 following the holiday weeks.

Planning for the weeks ahead is difficult and communication remains essential. We have continued to function under our School Closure Learning Plan to ensure consistent education delivery, placing an emphasis on the safety of your child/children and our staff. Although some districts have had students and staff return to their buildings, oftentimes this in-person instruction is disrupted due to COVID exposure or illness, resulting in the inability to effectively staff classrooms and the need to return to remote learning. We recognize that such vacillation is disruptive to families and have set our course accordingly. We anticipate that this will be an ongoing concern and subsequently remains an important component of our discussions regarding a sustainability plan. While we have already communicated that we will continue to provide education under our School Closure Learning Plan through January 22, 2021, we continue to regularly assess all aspects of teaching and educating children in our buildings. We recognize that a return to school plan that incurs frequent interruptions impacts family decisions and student learning.

Safety remains a top concern for the School, and we will continue to take all recommended precautions to keep everyone safe while offering a consistent approach to educating our students. We will communicate with our families as things evolve, allowing the time needed to make the best decisions under these extraordinary circumstances, but cannot commit to a specific date at this time returning students and staff to our buildings.

If you have any questions or concerns related to Covid-19, please continue to contact our School Nurse Program Coordinator. This individual is designated as the School’s Covid-19 Coordinator. [email protected]

We look forward to this new year and for your shared commitment in our ongoing effort of having the best interest of everyone within our school communities in mind.

Sincerely,
Rebecca L. Keeney
Executive Director
Constellation Schools LLC
