9/28/2020: School Week Schedule Change - First Virtual Friday on 10/16/2020

The Almond-Bancroft School District Board of Education approved a change in the weekly schedule.  Students will attend in-person Mondays through Thursdays, and Fridays will be virtual instruction days for all students.  Teachers will provide information about how the virtual days will work in each class/grade.  Instruction may include paper/pencil activities, electronic activities, enrichment or reinforcement activities, projects or other creative ideas.  Google Meets may or may not be used depending on teacher preference.
 
This change will take place starting the week of October 12th.  It will be reviewed at the November Board meeting.  Virtual Fridays will begin October 16th and continue on October 23rd and 30th.  Virtual Fridays in November will include the 6th, 13th and 20th.  Further notice will come out after the Board meeting on November 18th.
 
This change was decided to allow teachers more planning time in balancing the in-person and virutal instructional models.  We want to provide the best educational experiences we can during this difficult time.
 
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be virtual this year.  Teachers will be scheduling conferences with families either using a phone conference, Google Meet, or email.  The conferences may take place at times other than the designated conference evenings.
 
Thank you,
Dr. Boileau
