Mrs. Cutler's July 13th Meeting: Mitigating Risk at School

The content of this evening’s meeting was to discuss ways we mitigate risk, so we may return to school. The proposed plan still in discussion is to have our students back in school five days per week with online options for families who have special circumstance that may prohibit them from attending on campus. If you would like to give input or ideas to consider, please email the office (independenceoffice@2summit.org) in the next two days. The Board of Trustees will be discussing the plan Thursday evening for approval.

We will be using the seven characteristics discussed in the meeting to examine each school situation to mitigate risk while still being able to have an enjoyable learning experience. I will continue to update you and keep a communication loop going with families. Thank you for your support!

Following is a link to the power point presentation I was using in the meeting.
