Reopening Planning for 2020-2021: Instructional Program Update

Good Afternoon,

We hope this finds you and your families well. Attached to this letter is an information update about the work of the District's Instructional Committee, whose members have been preparing for the 2020-2021 school year within the context of multiple scenarios. Much that has been communicated in weekly updates, board presentations, parent meetings and website FAQs over the past months are included here with additional detail and examples.

To view a PDF of the Instructional Program Update, click here.

The learning options outlined in the document include the Full Return Plan, Hybrid Learning Plan, and Remote Learning Plan for LMSD schools as well as two virtual alternatives for families interested in opting out of onsite instructional opportunities this year. Depending on the degree of interest in these alternatives, we may need to reassign or hire new teachers. Please share your interest in these virtual alternatives using a form you will receive by email later today.

The Lower Merion School District will hold an Informational Session about these plan options on August 3, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. The Board will vote on the Reopening Plan for LMSD Schools at a Special Board Meeting on August 5, 2020, at 7:00 p.m.

Links for these meetings will be posted on the Meeting Calendar at by 6:30 p.m. the evening of the meeting.
