Hello Floyd Light Family, 

Hello Floyd Light Family, 

I hope your family is doing well. Hopefully, you have gotten the information that David Douglas will be doing distance learning 100% until at least November 13th (end of the first quarter). The new name for 100% Distance Learning is Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). If it is not safe to open November 13th, the next possible opening would be January 25th – the beginning of 3rd quarter.

I want to assure you that we are addressing every possibility. In the last two weeks, I have been in several planning meetings. Here are some of the highlights:

  • We want to be as equitable as possible and are planning to make a supreme effort to get ALL students engaged in learning.
  • We will be addressing students’ (and family’s) need for Social and Emotional well being.
  • We will start the year a week later (estimated to be September 14), so that our educators will take this later start to contact ALL families to make sure we remove any barriers to learning.
  • We will make the CDL platform consistent and as easy as possible for our students and families to navigate.
  • We will organize students into ‘houses’ with the same four core (Math, LA, SS, Science) teachers. Students will also have an elective and PE (for three quarters) and Health (one quarter).
  • When it is safe to come back, we plan to do a Hybrid Schedule where students will come back twice a week. Students will be in the same classes, with the same teachers, as the CDL.
  • When we come back to school, there will be on option to remain distance learning. More information on this Distance Learning will be coming when this decision is made.
  • Communicate often with families and use feedback.

Please contact me at any time with questions or input.

Visit the David Douglas School District Website for the most up-to-date information on school closures and family resources (including online learning) during the shutdown.

Sincerely,
Doug Pease, Principal
