Director's Update 7.17.20

posted Jul 17, 2020, 2:56 PM by Kurt Dronebarger
Hello everyone,
At this time, White County schools still plan to open on schedule using the hybrid approach as advertised in previous updates. Families will be notified by Wednesday, July 22nd concerning which weekdays their children will attend school. This plan has been approved by the school board and the health department and we feel that currently, it is the best option to provide educational services and still utilize best practices in the interest of public health. 

Students may also apply for an entirely online version of school by completing the online application located on this webpage. Please note, this online option (called the White County Virtual Instruction Program or VIP) will be very rigorous and families must have the technological tools necessary to participate. The online model will also exclude students from participating in extracurricular activities including athletics. The deadline to apply for the VIP model is July 29th and the VIP handbook will be available soon. Notification of acceptance to the VIP will be made by July 31st. General registration information can also be located on the district website's home page and the first full day of school is August 7th. 

Finally, there are many attitudes, beliefs, and opinions out there, but one thing that we can all agree on is the desire to keep our families safe and healthy. Let's continue to work together White County to protect and support each other. That is the quickest road to the normalcy that we all seek. 
Take care.
