Honey Creek Community School 2020-21 Reopening Plan

Honey Creek Community School will reopen on September 1, 2020 with online instruction only through October 16, 2020. This will enable Honey Creek to work closely with the WISD to ensure the safety of both the Honey Creek community and the High Point community. Online instruction will be reevaluated after 6-8 weeks. At that time, the administration will seek input from stakeholders, the county health department, and our authorizer about the possibility of resuming either full or modified in-person instruction. If it is determined that we may resume in-person instruction, we will do so two weeks from the decision date in order to give teachers and families appropriate time to transition to the new format.

  1. Devices: All students who are in need will receive a school issued device to complete school work. Families who do not have a reliable broadband connection will be provided a hotspot or other connection device. Distribution will take place on August 31, 2020. Should updates be required to devices distributed in the spring, a pick-up and distribution day will be scheduled.

  2. Attendance: Attendance in all classes is required. Attendance will be taken and recorded through a sign-in process.

  3. Schedule:

  4. School level teams, specials teachers, and educational service providers will develop and publish a schedule for any required class, group or individual meetings. These meetings will be published both in the schedule and on the class Google calendar so that families can subscribe.

  5. Regular Base Class Meetings will take place weekly for all grade levels at staggered times so that families with children in multiple grades are able to connect children one at a time.

  6. Weekly small group meetings will be held for all subject areas for K-5 students. Twice weekly small group meetings will be held for all subject areas for middle school students. We will do our best to anticipate and accommodate the scheduling needs of families with multiple students.

4. Instructional Communication: All materials and information for instruction (links, worksheets, communications, and schedules) will be posted on a common application so that all families can find instruction and assignments on a common platform. Agendas will be posted so that children and families know what their daily responsibilities are, including how they will log their attendance.

5. Classes:

A. K-1 will provide instruction in Language Arts, Mathematics, and Theme (science/social studies) Daily. Students will also receive instruction in Art, Music and Physical education weekly. Online instruction will be delivered in both a synchronous and asynchronous mode allowing families to determine the best approach for their child.

B. 2-3 will provide instruction in Language Arts, Mathematics, and Theme (science/social studies) Daily. Students will also receive instruction in Art, Music, Technology and Physical education weekly. Online instruction will be delivered in both a synchronous and asynchronous mode allowing families to determine the best approach for their child.

C. 4-5 will provide instruction in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies daily or through a block schedule. Students will also receive instruction in Art, Music, Technology and Physical education weekly. 5th grade students are invited to sign up for band. Online instruction will be delivered in both a synchronous and asynchronous mode allowing families to determine the best approach for their child.

D. Middle School will provide instruction in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies daily or through a block schedule. Students will also receive instruction in Art, Band, Technology and Physical education weekly. Necessary materials will be distributed at our scheduled materials pick up and drop off hours. Online instruction will be delivered in both a synchronous and asynchronous mode allowing families to determine the best approach for their child.

E. Students are expected to attend classes and meetings. All work is required and expected to be submitted in a timely manner. Work will be evaluated and feedback will be provided. We will work to ensure that the majority of the work can be completed on a schedule that works for the family as we are aware that family schedules are likely to be varied.

F. Materials that are not available on line will be distributed on a weekly basis. To accommodate family schedules, a day time and evening pick up time will be scheduled. Families may submit any paper classwork at that time.

G. After school sports will not be offered.

H. Honey Creek will provide a way for parents to coordinate shared care. This will allow children to interact with other children in a “bubble” and provide support for families as they feel comfortable and able to do so. Much like the coordination of shared rides, this will be voluntary and primarily community coordinated.
