Asbury & Chestnut Hill Virtual Learning Extended 11/5/2020
Nov 6, 2020
Attention Asbury Elementary & Chestnut Hill Elementary Families,
Thank you for your support and flexibility during the temporary shift to virtual learning at each of your school buildings. Please understand, as our team continues to work diligently to keep our schools open that our Administration’s focus remains on student success, academically, socially and emotionally. Millcreek Township School District will continue to collaborate with the Erie County Department of Health to follow the COVID-19 guidance provided as we navigate a pandemic within our school year.
Our Executive Leadership Team has been in communication with our Administration at both schools throughout the temporary virtual learning period to prepare for the transition back to the classrooms. At this time, the decision has been made to extend the virtual learning period for both Asbury Elementary and Chestnut Hill Elementary to Monday, November 16, 2020. Unfortunately, as a result of DOH & CDC COVID-19 guidelines and mitigation efforts, the availability of our academic staff and instructional support teams does not allow for a return on the previously planned dates of Monday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 10, 2020.
MTSD Community, please understand the decision to extend the temporary learning period for Asbury Elementary and Chestnut Hill Elementary was not made without careful consideration for our student’s academic success and the impact this may have to our families and staff. The MTSD Executive Leadership Team is collaborating with our partners to identify opportunities for our students to remain in face-to-face learning environments with the support of the dedicated, experienced, and talented MTSD Instructional Staff.
Please remember, to date, the MTSD Pandemic Teams has not tracked ANY coronavirus cases within the classroom or the school buildings.
Asbury Elementary & Chestnut Hill Elementary will reopen on Monday, November 16, 2020 with a student return on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 as in-person, on-campus day for our Blue group students.
Students will attend classes following the Google Classroom assignments provided by the teacher during this time. All attendance will be monitored through Infinite Campus for assignment participation and completion.If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Administration and/or Building Principal.
