Dear Janney Community,

I hope you enjoyed time offline over the long weekend.  Thank you for your continued flexibility as we begin in-person learning.  If your child is remaining virtual for Advisory 3 and experienced a class change, all updates in Canvas should be complete by tomorrow, W, 2/17.

I do not have any updated information on plans for Advisory 4 nor do I have any updates on whether or not there will be revisions to the current health and safety protocols in place for in-person learning.  I will update the community when I learn more information.  I know that the CDC released updated guidance last week, but we (DCPS School Leaders) have not received any new information.

We are offering additional opportunities for outdoor social clubs for our students who are remaining virtual in grades 3-5.  As a reminder, the lunch clubs for students in grades 4-5 that were started in Advisory 2 were only planned for Advisory 2 and were not intended to continue for the remainder of the year.  Most of the adults who hosted those lunch clubs are now reporting full-time in-person and cannot continue to host the lunch clubs.  We understand the value of these clubs and want to continue to offer some form of social interaction for our upper grade students.  While I recognize that there is a large demand for in-person opportunities, we cannot accommodate the full demand.  If you are interested in having your student in grades 3-5 attend an in-person club, please complete this survey which will remain open until Tuesday, February 23.  We will follow-up with additional information after that date and we expect to launch the new clubs on Monday, March 1.  The clubs will only run for Advisory 3 – March 1-April 9.  If you cannot commit the full length of the club as you have travel plans or other extenuating circumstances, we ask that you not sign your child up for a club.

Please continue to carefully read the rest of the newsletter as there is important information about our upcoming Read-a-thon.  Additionally, a separate email regarding our virtual Auction will be sent out this Thursday.  We have an amazing set of parent volunteers who have been working hard on both events and I look forward to virtually participating in those events with you all.

Sincerely,

Alysia Lutz, Principal
