Back to School Plan

The staff at SPGS has been working throughout the summer to create a safe and comprehensive plan for our students to return to school next month. The plan allows for students to come to school for face to face instruction 5 days a week, and it complies with all of the state’s guidelines and requirements. You can read the complete plan by clicking on the document at the end of this page. You will notice that it includes the following. 


  • Face to face instruction for all students 5 days a week

  • School hours will be 8:00-2:00 

  • Teachers rotate from classroom to classroom (students will stay in their classrooms as much as they can)

  • Remote learning option for students who cannot attend school due to a health concern

  • Face coverings required for everyone in the school

  • Students can take their face covering off when they are outside and six feet away from others

  • Classrooms, hallways, and lunchroom will be set up for social distancing

  • Daily temperature checks for all students and staff

  • Staggered dismissal times

  • School wide cleaning procedures and protocols

While we were in the process of developing our back to school plan, it became apparent that many of our parents had concerns related to the temperature of the classrooms in the fall and the students wearing masks. I am pleased to announce that starting this school year, each classroom with students in it will have an air conditioning unit. It is our hope that these units will help the students remain as comfortable as possible while they are at school and wearing a mask. 

The beginning of the school year is definitely going to be different than any school year we have experienced. Our goal is to keep things as “normal” as we can,  while also keeping all of our students and staff as safe as possible. It is our hope that this back to school plan achieves these two goals. It should be stressed that the plan is fluid, and could possibly change if the state makes changes to its guidance/requirements for returning to school. As we witnessed this spring, there is a chance that this will happen. As always, we will do our best to keep our families as updated as possible.
