Dr. Kane's Letter Regarding February 16 Return to School

February 4, 2021

Greetings QACPS Families and Employees,

QACPS will begin to implement the hybrid schedule on February 16, 2021. Students will rotate on an A/B day schedule with a virtual learning day on Wednesday each week.  School-based staff, bus drivers, custodians, food service employees, and central office staff are working to ensure that all school facilities are ready for the return of students.

Principals will contact families with details about schedules and transportation next week.  Human Resources staff continue to work with principals to fill vacancies in teaching positions, as well as, acquire substitutes for classes that will be taught virtually when students are in school.  Please contact Mrs. Bass at vanessa.bass@qacps.org if you are interested in substituting.  

All instructional staff is expected to return to school buildings by February 11, 2021.  QACPS will continue to honor approved Family Accommodation Plans (FAP) for employees, through February 12th.  Every effort is being made to ensure that students and employees are safe in QACPS facilities and resources are used efficiently to meet the needs of students and employees.  As always, thank you for your efforts to stay healthy and for doing your part to protect the safety of students, employees, and our community.

In Service,

Andrea M. Kane, Ph.D. 

Superintendent of Schools
