Good Morning,

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you for your recent survey responses. As I’ve shared, we will make a decision on in-person learning next week. If we are able to move into face-to-face learning, the first day would be on Monday, October 19th. If we move to in-person, we will share the full plan details and give you a chance to either sign up for in-person or stay virtual.
