Drew Phases to Hybrid Learning Option Starting March 1, 2021

Drew Charter School transitioned to a Hybrid Model earlier this Spring, with the first group of students returning to campus on March 1st.  The following information continues to serve as Drew’s guide as we’ve re-opened campus and transitioned to a hybrid learning model.  The information is intended to assist families with understanding the procedures, protocols, and practices Drew has established as we strive to maintain a safe, clean learning environment on our campus during this global pandemic.  Additionally, the guide outlines important resources--from counseling to technology support and free meal information--available to all of our Drew students and families regardless of whether they choose the virtual or hybrid instructional model.   
Our facilities, operations, and instructional teams have thoroughly researched and carefully implemented numerous preventive measures and made many modifications, all designed to protect our students and staff.   With the safety and wellbeing of our Drew community top of mind, we encourage all of our families to closely read this guidance.  At the same time, we also strongly advise each of our families to take precautions and do your part at home to keep everyone safe. In daily activities, beyond Drew, remember to always wear a mask, socially distance from others, wash your hands frequently, stay home when you or a family member is ill, and, as much as possible, limit contact with those persons outside of your household.  Drew is committed to constantly and consistently doing all we can to preserve the health of our school family.  Ultimately, however, the well-being of our community is as strong as the members who comprise it.  We must all be vigilant for the sake of everyone, yet flexible for bumps that may be on the road ahead.  We depend on each other! Let’s work together to keep everyone healthy and safe!
