Round Lake Charter's Reopening for the 2020-2021 School Year
Please review the current draft of Round Lake Charter's Reopening Plan. We are still offering two options: Traditional Learning (with increased safety measures) AND Innovative Learning (remote/virtual learning by a Round Lake Teacher). The information in this draft is subject to change based on additional guidelines and/or mandates from the state and Department of Health.
We understand this is not an easy decision and support whichever choice is best for your family. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding as we work together to make this a safe and wonderful school year!
*Note in the plan that Round Lake Charter will be requiring masks or face coverings for all students and staff on campus.
**If you select the innovative learning option for the first nine weeks, movement back to brick and mortar will depend on available space but we will do our best to help meet your family's needs.
The first day of school for students will be on Monday August 24th.

**THE PLANS PRESENTED BELOW ARE A DRAFT AND ARE SUBJECT TO APPROVAL AND CHANGES**
The survey has been updated to indicate your selection for the first NINE WEEKS. Round Lake’s leadership team will continue to assess the plan and communicate options for each nine weeks as we receive new guidelines and information from the state and CDC.
OPTION ONE: IN-PERSON EDUCATION AT ROUND LAKE CHARTER
Students will attend class at Round Lake Charter. All students will also be enrolled in their assigned teacher's online Google Classroom, in case of an extended absence or the need for distanced instruction. In-person ESE and ESL support will be provided to those students who are eligible. In the case of new developments and depending on state and CDC guidelines, distanced innovative learning could be implemented for the safety of students and teachers who choose this option.
OPTION TWO: INNOVATIVE LEARNING
Students will be assigned to a "distanced" classroom. These students will abide by a schedule which includes interactive time with an assigned Round Lake teacher. Assignments and expectations will be similar to in-person instruction and submitted through Google Classroom. Round Lake's innovative learning teachers will be available during the school day (8:35-2:55) to provide instruction and assistance to their students, however each innovative learning teacher's schedule will be personalized by them once enrollment is finalized. ESE and ESL support will be provided virtually.
*VPK parents will be contacted on Monday, July 13th regarding Round Lake’s VPK program for the 2020-2021 school year.
We thank you for taking the time to review the options and make your selection. Please reach out to Round Lake's administration with any questions. We hope you are all staying healthy and safe!
