Return to Learn
In planning for the start of the 2020-21 school year, district leaders across all departments have been working through the MI Safe Schools Roadmap created by the Return to School Advisory Council, and analyzing feedback from our recent parent survey to develop a comprehensive Return to Learn plan for all Bronchos.
TWO LEARNING OPTIONS FOR FALL 2020
|Our district’s Return to Learn plan provides parents with a choice to decide what works best for their family. We recognize that not every family’s needs are the same. There are two comprehensive options in our district’s Return to Learn Plan. All plans will be contingent on the realities we are facing in August. We will continue to take guidance from the State of Michigan, Oakland County Health Division, and the Centers for Disease Control to best support the health and safety of our students and employees.|
HAS In-Person Learning
In-person teaching and learning will occur five full-days of instruction a week if we are in Phase 4 or 5 of the MI Safe Start Plan. While this will look different from traditional school in order to meet safety standards, it is our intention to return students to classroom routines that are as close to the traditional model as possible.
HAS 100% Virtual Learning
Knowing not all families will be comfortable returning to school in-person, Holly Area Schools proudly offers a 100% virtual online learning program for students in Grades Y5 -12. This program will look and feel very different from the Holly@Home distance learning program experienced this past Spring. With time to plan and provide training for staff, we are able to offer a much more comprehensive online program. This will be a strong option for families who are not comfortable returning to school buildings.
Holly Area Schools Schools created this FAQ to address common questions from students, parents/guardians and community members regarding the Return to Learn plan for the 2020-21 School Year.
HAS understands that as families review their learning options for the fall, each family may have their own unique situation that may lead to individual questions. In an effort to support the needs of everyone, we will use the following form to gather those questions:
