Dear Superior Schools Parents & Guardians,

We have spent the last three weeks in discussions and planning sessions with peers statewide as well as with staff here at home to create the plan we will be proposing to the Superior Board of Trustees in August. As you can imagine, planning school programming during a pandemic has been extremely challenging, especially when considering all the different variables continually at play. Regardless of the phase, we are in via Governor Bullock’s most recent executive order, our staff will be offering ongoing online remote learning via the Google Classroom portal. Pursuant to state and local guidance, we will also be holding face-to-face instruction here on campus as well from either 8:15 am to 2:30 pm or 8:15 am - 3:30 pm depending on how many students will be engaging in off-site learning. All staff are planning to return to their classrooms to teach and our course schedule will be amended in areas to comply with guidance provided by the Mineral County Health Department, the Montana School Boards Association, the Office of Public Instruction, and the Department of Health and Human Services.  

It is vitally important for those parents & guardians who are not sending their child(ren) to school to sign and return the attached Family Onsite Instruction Opt-Out Form indicating this preference so we can continue planning class size and sections for both on and off-site instruction. This choice will be in force for the duration of the first quarter of school as students’ unplanned return would undo all the class load balancing necessary to accomplish social distancing. It is also crucial that we get accurate and up-to-date contact information (email address, cell, and home phone numbers) to ensure that we are communicating effectively with families. Staff will be reaching out via phone, email, and postal mail with back to school information and forms in the next week. The Family Onsite Instruction Opt-Out Form is due back to your child’s respective school by NO LATER THAN August 7th to give us time to build class schedules.

We eagerly look forward to getting back to the business of teaching Superior’s children. We thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we continue to refine the ever-changing look of school during this crisis.

In Education,

Scott Kinney
