Return to Learn Update
March 21, 2021


On March 19, district and labor leaders reached an agreement to reopen schools for in-person learning after Spring Break. I’ll share as much information as I can with you today and throughout this week, but I’m also asking you to please exercise patience while Caleb staff and I work to finalize campus readiness and create cohorts, schedules and procedures in alignment with district health, safety and return guidelines.

As you can imagine creating cohorts and managing schedules is ga complex process. As such, we are not able to honor individual requests for cohort placement and will rely on the district’s process to ensures siblings and children in the same household are placed together across segments and sites. We are excited to bring each and every one of our students back to school and we have a lot of work and learning to do to make it happen. We are going to be extra busy this week, so please carefully read and consider all information provided below before reaching out to your teachers and me with specific questions. 

Return to Learn Timeline

Concurrent Learning (both in-person and distance): All students will engage in Distance Learning on Mondays, and students electing to remain in full Distance Learning will do so Monday-Friday. Students who elected to return in person, will do so in small cohorts, with Cohort A attending in-person Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Cohort B attending in-person Thursdays and Fridays. Please watch this video to see what to expect from Concurrent Learning: 

  • March 25: Schedules Released
  • To Be Announced: Cohort Notification 
  • April 6: Caleb Community Meeting via Zoom to discuss in-person/concurrent details 
  • April 8: eK-3rd Students Return
  • April 15: 4th-6th Students Return 
  • April 22: 7th-12th Students Return 

*For families that did not submit their decision for In-Person or Distance Learning last week, your students will be automatically enrolled in the In-Person/ Concurrent Learning model and will be notified of cohort placement shortly. Some families may need an opportunity to provide additional information or to modify their decisions. Please look out for a form in the upcoming days to communicate this information.
