Letter to Secondary Parents/Guardians about Second Semester

Printable Version of Letter to Secondary Parents about Second Semester

November 4, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We would like to update you about our ability to change the instructional model (in-person hybrid or remote) for students at CMS, WGMS, and WGHS. Back in August, you were asked to make a selection and a commitment for the first semester of the school year which runs through January 29, 2021.

At this point in time, if you are interested in a change to your child’s instructional model (from remote to in-person, or in-person to remote) please call your building principal by Wednesday, November 18, 2020.

Unfortunately, the Onondaga County Health Department and NYS guidelines have not changed, so there is no guarantee that we will be able to make changes to your child’s current instructional model. These guidelines include:

  • students seated six feet apart; which limits the number of students per room
  • fixed number of staff and classrooms
  • class size limits for both in-person and remote

Please know that we continue to prioritize the health and wellness of our entire school community.


Stephen R. Dunham
Director of Secondary Education
