Nashville Grade School Principal Chuck Fairbanks addressed the elementary committee on Wednesday afternoon, outlining potential scenarios for the 2020-21 school year.
The Remote Learning Committee, Fairbanks said in a live tweet, has discussed numerous options including a normal start to the next school year with all students able to attend, a partial start with some of the students allowed in the building or a complete remote learning curriculum. There have also been talks of delaying the start of the school year until after Labor Day.
“At this time, every scenario is at play,” Fairbanks said. “There is a good chance that it will not be until the end of July or the beginning of August to know what we are going to be able to do.”
Fairbanks also urged parents to fill out the Internet connectivity survey on the school’s website as information from that survey is being used to help school officials plan for the future. Fairbanks said relevant updates will be provided throughout the summer vacation as more information becomes available.
