As we cross the midpoint of summer, I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to update families on where we are in our preparations for the 2021-22 school year. Student schedules are still being finalized as we move some students (and some classes) around to ensure we have a balanced school day. As mentioned earlier this summer, if you happened to see a schedule on Infinite Campus this summer, please disregard what you saw. That day was very early in our process, and there is a strong chance it will look very different in early August when we release schedules. If you have driven past the building lately, you can see that we are deep into year two of our roof/HVAC updates. We anticipate that will all be done in time for teachers and students to report for the school year. I do not have too much to offer in terms of what sort of COVID safety protocols will be in place when we get started again. The District Leadership Team is still reviewing the updates that have been released this summer and will share the plan with families once it is complete. No final decision has been made yet on our ability to host an open building during the week of August 9 as we have done in the past. For students who have not yet set foot inside of Wood Oaks at all, we are working on a plan to at least get those students into the building before the August 19 start of school, likely earlier that week. This would be for all of our 6th graders and those 7th graders who were remote for the entire year last year. More information to follow on that.
In the meantime, school supply lists are available on the website to help your student best prepare for classes in August. I hope you all enjoy the remainder of your summer.
