Vulnerable Populations/Accommodations 

We recognize that some students and staff members are at an increased risk for severe COVID-19 illness, live with a person who is at an increased risk, or simply do not feel comfortable returning to an in-person educational environment. It is our goal to provide reasonable accommodations that ensure these individuals are able to safely participate in educational activities. 

  • Any child whose parent deems the child unable to attend in-person learning will be given the opportunity to use the hybrid plan.
