Parent Letter 7/28


July 28, 2020

As of right now, Crest will begin the school year with the first day of classes beginning on August 21. The district will continue to work on reopening plans to be shared with the community at the earliest date possible.  The board and district leadership team, which consists of teachers and administrators, will continue planning to develop the best opportunities for our students.  As you know, this is an ever changing situation.

Enrollment will continue as follows:

August 12 - 8:00-3:00 Last Initial A-M

August 13 - 8:00-3:00 Last Initial N-Z

August 14 - 8:00-12:00 (Pre-K /New Students)

Our district is working on ways to provide online enrollment for families.  More details will be provided closer to enrollment.

Crest plans to encourage face-to-face instruction for the 2020-2021 school year, however, we will also offer a “Remote Learning” option for parents who do not feel safe sending students to school during the pandemic. Your child will still have to be enrolled at Crest USD 479 and much more accountability / rigor will be required by the district and the Kansas Department of Education than last spring.  Students enrolled in the “remote setting” will be required to complete logs with seat time requirements.  As mentioned before, more information on this option will be released at a later date.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate through this process.

If you have interest in remote instruction provided by the district, please contact your building administrator.  Leave a message at the following numbers and we will be in contact with you.
