Dear MPT, I hope everyone had a happy, healthy and safe New Year. I started planning on our return to hybrid learning on January 19, 2021. The Groups for Phase 2 will not change… as of the last day in school on November 20, 2020, your child will be in the same group on January 19, 2021. For example if your child was in: Group A (Monday and Tuesday 1/2 day in person) -Group B (Thursday and Friday 1/2 day in person) Group C (Fully Remote) or Group D (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) when we were last in school on November 20, 2020, your child will be in the same group on January 19, 2021. If you have a change in what you would like for your child, please contact me by January 8th. If you do not recall your child’s group, you can find this information in the Genesis Portal under your child’s picture. Wednesdays will continue to be fully remote for everyone. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we transition. Mrs. Margaret Truppa Principal
