Dear MCPSS Parents and Guardians,
Like most of you, I am looking forward to the day when we can welcome our students back into the classroom. However, Mobile County is experiencing some of its highest numbers of COVID-19 cases to date, and we as a community must do what is best for the health and safety of our students, our teachers, other employees, and their families. That is why we have made the difficult decision to offer all classes remotely for the first quarter of the school year, which will begin on September 1.
Please read the attached document, Keeping Our Kids Safe. This is our plan for remote learning, which will look different from last spring. Here, we outline our expectations and the support we will provide for your student and your family during these unprecedented times.
My hope is that we will be able to return to school for the second quarter, but that will depend on how the COVID-19 numbers trend in our county. I know this year will not be easy, but I also know that as #TeamMCPSS, we will work together to provide the best possible educational experience for your children during these times.
