Intent to Return

Greetings Druid Hills Middle School Parents, 

  Our school uses the Parent Intent to Return form completion data to gather information about families wishing to return in a hybrid model or remain in a distance/remote setting.  

  

Hybrid Learning (Combination of Face-to-Face and Distance/Remote Learning): 

·       The hybrid learning model is designed for families who feel comfortable with returning their children to a face-to-face, in-school environment blended with distance/remote learning. 

  

Distance/Remote Learning Model: 

·       The distance/remote learning model is designed for families who do not feel comfortable with their children returning to school in a face-to-face format at this time. The students will continue learning from home in a virtual format provided by the school. 

  

We need all parents to submit the survey form for every child attending our school, so we can prepare for all learners. If we do not receive a survey response for your child, we will assume that your child is returning to learn in a hybrid setting whenever the District transitions to the next phase. The survey form will close on November 30, 2020, so please complete it today! If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thank you and have a happy Thanksgiving!
