A Message from Our Superintendent

August 7, 2020

Lander Community,

The FCSD1 received approval from the Wyoming Department of Education for its Smart Start Plan. The approved plan can be found here. Each building has sent out their own Smart Start Plan to students and families currently enrolled for the 2020–21 school year with details specific to their building. The 2020 Reopening Info page will contain the most recent information regarding reopening plans and Covid-19 information. An important reminder, due to the evolving nature of Covid-19, all plans are subject to revision. When any changes occur, stakeholders will be notified. 

An important part of the Smart Start Plan is the Virtual Learning component that all schools will be offering. The Virtual Learning Instructional Plan was introduced in last week’s message to stakeholders. In order for administration and instructors to finalize the details of their plan, the number of students that wish to use the virtual learning option is required. FCSD #1 is requesting those families/students wishing to use the virtual plan choose that option no later than August 12. If you enrolled your student prior to the virtual learning option being offered in Infinite Campus, please call individual schools to inform them that your student wishes to be enrolled in virtual instruction.

Part of the Smart Start plan involves the use of face coverings when physical distancing cannot be maintained. The FCSD1 plan states that face coverings should be used “to the greatest extent possible.” After consultation with the Wyoming Department of Education and the Wyoming Department of Health, the district was advised that health orders override any “recommendations” provided by agencies other than the Wyoming Department of Health in conjunction with the local Public Health office. In other words, “to the greatest extent possible” means that under current health orders face coverings are required when physical distancing can not be maintained. There are exceptions to this order for those who may not be able to wear face coverings. The exceptions are outlined in a Frequently Asked Questions section.

Please contact your building principal(s) with questions about an individual school’s virtual plan. 

Sincerely,

Dave Barker

Dave Barker, Superintendent
