Many homeschool leaders are trying make plans for the fall of 2020 amidst the corona pandemic, social distancing requirements and concerns for member’s health and safety.
Recently one leader, Jennifer, shared on a Facebook group for leaders classical education programs called The Garden: Planting and Tending Classical Homeschool Programs what she has communicated at this point (early May 2020) to her member-families.
Jennifer graciously gave me permission to share this. We both hope it is helpful.
What about Covid?
As of right now, we DO plan to begin our school year on time. The board will be closely monitoring all of the happenings with Covid-19 and will make timely decisions as needed.
However, please know that we will not necessarily make decisions in line with local school systems. We will likely be more in line with local churches and of course we will honor the mandates from our local government.
We will strictly enforce our campus sick-policy which is carefully outlined in our handbook. I am confident that all of our families will be so careful to respect each other by being extra diligent in choosing to keep their family home if in doubt regarding the illness.
Everyone will receive an updated handbook at the Parent Orientation.
We want to be wise and we are eager to meet at (group name)!
Obviously, you may make a different decision from what Jennifer’s group decided, so please feel free to edit Jennifer’s email to your voice and your group.
HomeschoolCPA is planning a webinar for Monday June 1, 2020 at 8 pm ET for homeschool leaders to address how to make decisions about your fall 2020 programs.
Registration is now open (it’s free, but you need to register). There are three homeschool leaders who have agreed to be on a panel to explain how they are making their decisions.
