Starting Tuesday, April 6, 2021, all D90 students will begin attending school for the full instructional day, with elementary school students (Lincoln and Willard) attending school five days per week. Roosevelt students will also have an extended instructional day but will remain on the A/B block schedule until Monday, April 26. Families of Roosevelt students will receive additional information from Roosevelt Principal Larry Garstki about the transition from two-days-per-week attendance to the full five-days-per-week instruction that will begin on April 26. Please be on the lookout for this information. Students enrolled in the Full Remote Learning Option (FRLO) at both the elementary and middle levels will also have a full instructional day that will align with their peers in the classroom.
For elementary students, full-day attendance will be approximately 8:15 a.m. – 3:15 p.m. Arrival and dismissal times will vary and be staggered to accommodate social distancing, safety protocols, and other school-specific factors. Student drop-off and pick-up procedures will also vary based on school-specific protocols to accommodate the increased number of students attending in-person instruction. New lunch procedures will also be instituted at each school. Please refer to the specific details provided by the school administration.
Full-day attendance for middle school students will last from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., with students continuing to follow the A/B hybrid model with the block schedule format. Again, arrival and dismissal times and student drop-off and pick-up procedures may vary to accommodate safety protocols, social distancing, and other factors specific to Roosevelt. Class periods will be 80 minutes in length (instead of 70-minute class periods). New middle school lunch procedures will also be instituted. Please refer to the specific details provided by the school administration.
The full-day, in-person instructional schedule is expected to be in effect until the end of this school year on June 11, 2021, barring health/safety concerns or subsequent direction from state or local health agencies.
Please refer to your school’s guidance about these issues and others. The guidelines for Lincoln and Willard are below. Please click on the appropriate link below. Due to the unique nature of Roosevelt’s situation with the staggered return to five-day-per-week instruction, communications with middle school families will come directly from Principal Larry Garstki.
