Dear Methacton Families,
This message addresses two matters:
- Frequently asked questions regarding Methacton
- On Premise Reopening Plan – Focus Group registration now open
Before we get to the two matters listed above, it is important that you know we will continue to provide information on Methacton On Premise reopening plan and Methacton Online each week as we progress to the final Board adoption on July 28, 2020. Going forward please send questions to Reopening@Methacton.org. I will be monitoring this email account and will be responding via FAQ’s to the common questions.
While the draft Methacton On Premise plan has about 31 pages of detail, we will be highlighting the following specific topics in the coming days including:
- Face Coverings
- Classroom Configurations/Distancing
- Breakfast, Lunch and Recess
- Cleaning/Disinfecting Protocols
With regards to Methacton Online, the online plan was communicated last week. In the same communication, I provided information around deadlines for High School students on July 29 and for all other students on August 5, 2020. The purpose of these deadlines is to properly gather information so that we can best organize a schedule for On Premise and Online.
Remember- if you are strongly considering or are certain with your decision to have your child(ren) begin school this coming year on line- Register here.
If you have specific questions regarding Methacton Online, continue to email Methactononline@methacton.org – This account will be monitored by Dr. Kelley Harmer, Eagleville Elementary Principal and the administrator in charge of Methacton Online.
Frequently asked questions regarding Methacton
My message from last week resulted in several questions from parents that we have provided responses to in our frequently asked questions section on our Reopening website.
There were a number of questions that relate to the On Premise plan which will be answered in the coming weeks.
