Welcome Back

Our Road to Return

Beginning April 26, E.L. Haynes will expand in-person programs at all three campuses. 

Stay up-to-date

Check out our updates on Q4 and beyond.

From now to throughout the 2021-2022 School Year, we will be providing updates and hosting forums to discuss the evolving situation around our return to in-person learning. You will be able to find all of our updates and events in the links below.

Elementary

In-person play for ALL students and in-person learning for invited students

Our plan for Q4 it made up of two parts, both of which were informed by community feedback.

First, we will increase in-person play for ALL students. We will invite students to participate in a weekly 45-minute outdoor play group with their grade level peers.

Second, based on data and other prioritization factors, students in grades Pre-K through 4th will be invited to attend in-person four days per week. Students will be invited until seats are filled.

Middle School

Structured after-school activities for ALL students and LIONS Classrooms for invited students

Our plan for Q4 it made up of two parts, both of which were informed by community feedback.

First, we will launch structured afternoon activities for ALL interested students, including clubs, extracurricular activities, and athletics. These activities will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Second, based on data and other prioritization factors, students will be invited to attend LIONS Classrooms in-person four days per week. LIONs Classrooms are supervised spaces for students to participate in virtual learning alongside their peers. We will offer up to two classrooms per grade.

Summer Programming

Monday, June 28 through Friday, July 16

Over the course of summer 2021, we will offer three weeks of programming, the majority of which will take place from Monday, June 28, through Friday, July 16. All programs will be optional for families, be made up of a mix of in-person or virtual programming, look different across campuses, and free to all families. We will also offer Extended-School Year programming (ESY) for students who qualify.

We will share more information with families by Friday, April 9.

Next Year

The 2021-2022 School Year will be another unique year

We know that next year will look different than normal years, and that it will also look different than this year. Our goal is to have as many students learning in person on any given day as possible. ALL families who choose to return in-person will be able to do so, but the number of students on-site will be dictated by social distancing and cohorting guidelines. For families who are still uncomfortable sending their students back to school buildings, we will offer a 100% virtual option.

Help us create a more just and kind world.
