As you know, Savannah R3 district staff and administration have spent countless hours over the last few weeks considering what school will look like in the fall. Currently, all of our efforts are focused on a return to school plan. We take great pride in creating meaningful learning opportunities for every student in our district while also making sure we maintain a safe learning environment.
Please keep in mind that this is an ever-evolving situation and despite our diligent planning, nothing is set in stone.
SR3 is continually working on plans for our students in the fall. Parents and Guardians can expect weekly communication via email and the district website from now until school starts. The district will be holding community meetings on July 28th at Savannah Middle School and August 3rd at Savannah High School.
What is the plan for reopening Savannah R3 schools for the 2020-21 school year? Will my child physically return to his/her assigned school this fall?
SR3 is planning for in-person school in the fall with extensive safety precautions in place.
If you are concerned about your child’s safety, you will have the option to enroll your child in Savannah R3's Virtual Learning Program.
Both in-person classes AND virtual learning classes will start on August 24 and will have full grade-level designed work with timely feedback from teachers. Virtual Learners will be expected to spend multiple hours working in the program during the school day to meet the academic requirements set forth by the state and district so that the work they are doing is comparable to those in the regular classroom.
Please note that a parent or guardian can declare their student a VIRTUAL learner once each semester. If a decision is made to change a student's status to IN-PERSON learning, he/she cannot go back to VIRTUAL without medical documentation.
As we continue to receive feedback from our staff and parents, we will update and release more information regarding the distance learning plan.
