Asynchronous Learning Day for All Students **Schedule Change**

Asynchronous Learning Day for All Students **Schedule Change**

Date & Time: Fri, 03/12/2021 (All day)

Dear Five Star Families,

As we mentioned in last week’s community update, a large portion of Five Star Schools Staff is scheduled to receive their second dose of the COVID vaccine this weekend (March 13-14). 

The anticipated significant snowstorm, set to move into the metro area late Friday, has made planning for this weekend’s staff vaccination clinics challenging. With the largest impact of snow in the metro area currently predicted for Saturday and Sunday, we worked with our community partner to reschedule the clinics for this Friday, ahead of the predicted storm. 

In making this decision we had two main interests we wanted to uphold: keep staff on schedule to receive their second dose of the vaccine in alignment with the original schedule and minimize any unnecessary disruptions to student learning. Additionally, these vaccine doses must be used by this Sunday, and therefore this Friday is the last day to use them before the storm.  

What Families Need to Know *Schedule Change*

Asynchronous Learning Day for all students on Friday, March 12
In order to allow the roughly 2,000 staff members to receive their second dose of the vaccine on Friday, we will make Friday, March 12 an asynchronous learning day for all students. Families will receive more information regarding learning on Friday from your child’s teacher or school.   

While this storm has impacted previous planning for the weekend clinics, we are optimistic that moving this clinic will allow the majority of staff to spend the weekend recovering from any potential side effects from the vaccine and allow for, provided that weather and road conditions have improved, a regular day of learning with minimal staffing shortages on Monday, March 15. 

We realize this is an unanticipated change in a year that has brought many. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as prioritizing these important vaccinations bring us one step closer to providing the consistent learning environment students need and deserve.
