Dear NYOS Community,
 
As we head into the summer, we want to update you on NYOS’ plans for returning to school for the fall semester.
 
The start date for NYOS staff remains July 14, 2020. The start date for NYOS students remains July 27th, 2020. See the NYOS calendar here. We expect that some students will need additional instruction to make up for learning gaps that developed in the spring. When planning for the fall semester, please note that your student may be invited to Saturday school and/or intersession lessons during Fall break. 
 
Reopening will be an exercise in flexibility for our staff, students, and families. We hope that all students will be able to return to campus for the fall semester. However, we expect that we will need a hybrid approach at least to begin. Of course, it is also possible that we would return to fully-remote instruction if COVID-19 cases spike in Central Texas again.
 
Leander ISD put together a very thoughtful diagram of the continuum of options schools are likely to face in the 2020-2021 school year. When reading this infographic, replace August with July for NYOS since our calendar starts earlier than LISD.
