Editor’s note: The school sent out this letter this afternoon. More local schools are expected to follow with their own plans.
Hello Ghidotti Families,
As most of you know, Sierra College is planning for the transition of its lecture courses to remote instruction by Wednesday, March 18. This is in preparation of COVID-19. Though no one at Sierra College has tested positive, the situation is very dynamic. Sierra College is providing updates here.
Ghidotti has been working with the college and high school district to devise a plan that’s in alignment with Sierra’s COVID-19 protocols. The goal is to minimize exposure while continuing instruction. It’s not ideal, but we feel it’s the best we can do given the circumstances:
Independent Study: Starting Monday, March 23, Ghidotti classes will not meet in-person. Students will officially be put on “independent study” and lessons will be delivered online through Schoology. This will take place as long as Sierra College’s campus is shutdown for lecture classes.
Minimum Days: Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week (March 18, 19, and 20) will be minimum days, ending at 1 p.m. This will give our teachers some time to prepare their curriculum for independent study.
Normal Days: March 10-17 classes are scheduled as normal.
Sports: Volleyball and Track & Field practices and games will continue as planned.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these uncharted waters. Though this is tough, I also appreciate Sierra College’s proactive approach, as it’s given Ghidotti time to plan.
