May 22, 2020: Looking ahead: summer school and plans for the 2020-2021 school year
The last day of student instruction was Friday, May 22, 2020. The last day for teachers is Friday, May 29, 2020.
At-home summer school, however, is quickly approaching. Here's the schedule for selected students:
June 8 through July 2, 2020
Monday through Thursday
8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
There will be a food distribution for breakfast and lunch one day per week on Wednesdays. Each school site will distribute grab and go packets between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 pm. Please wear masks or face coverings when you pick up the food. You will also be asked to verbally complete a short survey.
Summer school teachers will have office hours to provide direct support to students and answer parent questions and concerns.
For the 2020-2021 school year, our original start date is August 17, 2020. However, we may open sooner than that. We are reviewing a possible combination of in-class instruction and distance learning, and possibly extending the school year. We will consider options based on the changing landscape of the coronavirus and information from the Texas Education Agency, our staff and our parents. We will inform you when we have completed our planning.
Please don't forget to re-enroll your children for the 2020-2021 school year. A re-enrollment form is available here. You may also enroll by going to varnett.org and clicking the "Enroll Now" or "Matriculese Ahora" tab.
You are encouraged to frequently check for updates at varnett.org.
We appreciate your patience during these challenging times. Please stay safe and thank you for making The Varnett Public School your school of choice.
