Dear OCPS Family:

 

As you most likely have already heard, Governor Northam has announced new measures to combat the spread of the virus COVID-19. One of those measures is to close Virginia K-12 schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. In my conference call with State Superintendent Dr. James Lane today, he did suggest that the state department will provide guidance in the near future on: graduation, verified credits, continuity of learning, transitioning from this year to next year in terms of narrowing the learning gap, grading, interpretation of USED’s guidance on special education, food security, etc. As you know, the list is ad infinitum.

 

We will continue to keep moving forward as strategically as the changing information allows.

 

We will walk together through this in support of our students, families, community, and each other.

 

Please continue to share my blog http://www.ocss-va.org/covid-19/ with those interested.

 

Thank you for your strength and courage.
