A Letter from Superintendent Broskie
Last August was fraught with a lot of uncertainty as we reopened our school buildings to simultaneously teach in-person and virtually during a global pandemic. I know this past school year was challenging and I want to share my sincere gratitude for the support and patience from our students, parents, teachers, staff, and community as we navigated through the unprecedented 2020-2021 school year. I continue to be amazed by this wonderful community and how we work together during difficult times to continue to provide the best education and experiences through a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students in Clay County.
Over the past year, many changes, guidance, and opinions regarding COVID-19 have existed. As a school district, our number one priority will always be the safety and well-being of our students and staff. With the success of our 2020-2021 school year, and the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines, the district has revised the Smart Restart Plan to include some best practices learned from this past year, coupled with practical measures, to move forward into a phase II health and safety approach to the 2021-2022 school year.
In this updated policy, you will continue to see our continued and revised efforts, measures, and protocols to promote a safe and healthy learning environment. As a school community, we cannot do this work without the support of our students and our parents. Your partnership in supporting the health of our students and staff is paramount as we return to a more normal school setting for the 2021-2022 school year. Should you have any specific questions regarding school operations for the upcoming school year, I encourage you to reach out to your child’s principal.
Again, I thank you for your continued support and dedication to the well-being of our students and staff. We truly are #OneClay and I look forward to working with you for another successful school year.
