As DPS heads into the final weeks of school before summer break, we wanted to provide an update on our plans for the fall and next steps for our families.
DPS recently shared plans for a full return to in-person learning for all students in all grades next fall, as well as the option to enroll in the centrally run remote learning option for families who want it. As we plan for the 2021-22 school year, we’re optimistic that classrooms will look a lot more like they did prior to the pandemic, and we can’t wait to welcome all our students back into our school building for full days of learning next year!
As we’ve learned, there is no substitute for face-to-face instruction. And we’ve seen that, for most students, in-person time spent with friends, teachers and school-support staff results in a much richer learning experience. We believe children learn best from interactive and hands-on experiences with the support of our caring Bradley educators — which is why we recommend this option for the majority of our kids.
Families whose students will be returning to full-time, in-person learning next year do not need to take any action, and their students will automatically be enrolled in in-person learning at Bradley for the 2021-22 school year.
Families who would like to enroll their student in the centrally run remote-learning program for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year should complete the Learning Option Selection form on the Parent Portal, or call the school’s front office, between May 10 and June 4 – or fill out the remote learning option form and return to the main office before June 4th (Learning Option Selection for 21-22 and in Spanish Learning Option Selection for 21-22). Please note that students will not receive instruction from Bradley’s teachers during the year that they are enrolled in the centrally run online program. They will, however, keep their spot at Bradley for the 2022-23 school year.
