Thank you so much for your continued support and cooperation as we work through our “new” opening of school routines. We continue student learning with our Hybrid Model next week on Tuesday, please be reminded both cohorts will have in-person instruction alternating weeks, and families should check the updated school calendar or be sure to post the colored coded calendar on the kitchen refrigerator. See above under Announcements for the District Calendar.

Welcome back, finally, to the start of another exciting school year! The first week is in the books! Thank you so much for your continued support and cooperation as we work through our “new” opening of school routines. The FLRSD current enrollment for this year is 2,739 children, which is down 95 students from last year as a result of pandemic concerns and homeschooling decisions. We resume student learning with our Hybrid Model next week on Tuesday, please be reminded both cohorts will have in-person instruction alternating weeks, and families should check the updated school calendar or be sure to post the colored coded calendar on the kitchen refrigerator. I will continue to attach the school calendar to this message for your convenience.

Commissioner's Back-to-School Update Focused on a safe start to the new school year Teaching and learning — whether happening in-person, remotely, or through a hybrid of both models — will look different this year. I want to thank everyone who has planned so carefully for this fall’s start of school. Our primary concern is for the well-being of students and staff during the coronavirus pandemic. We recognize the difficulty of leading a school district in such times, and we will continue to post COVID-19 updates at COVID-19 Information and Resources, email information to districts, and hold conference calls. We are also sharing resources, including training opportunities, that schools, districts, and families can use to support their own learning and discussions related to racial equity and anti-racism awareness.

The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District is scheduled to resume student learning with our Hybrid Model on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. The district submitted 239 license requests to TECCA for our district remote learning platform this week. We are no longer accepting requests for this semester. The breakdown was: High School Level -38, Middle Level -63, Elementary Level -138. The FLRSD projected enrollment for the 2020-21 school year is 2,850 total students. As a result, 90% of our families will participate in our Hybrid Model, (8.4%) through TECCA, and (1.6%) will receive homeschooling instruction.

The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District is scheduled to resume student learning with a Hybrid Model on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. Cohort A would return to school in person for one week, while Cohort B works remotely from home. Conversely, the following week Cohort B would receive in school instruction and Cohort A would work remotely from home. We have every confidence that this would be the best choice for instruction for our students as it safely allows cohorts of students to receive in person instruction from their FLRSD teacher. Using this model, teachers can monitor and assess learning while addressing any difficulties students may have with the content being taught.
