Dock Mennonite Academy's Pandemic Team hosted a Zoom presentation for parents this morning to more fully describe the school's plan to reopen this fall with both on-campus and remote learning options, as well as the rationale for their direction. They also provided some insight as to how these options might be experienced by students at both campuses. Parents were encouraged to ask questions through the Chat feature on Zoom. The presentation was recorded for those not able to join at that time. The archive recording of that presentation, as well as the Powerpoint used, are available at the link below.
Read about Dock's reopening plan for the fall
"I just want to take a moment to say thank you. It is obvious that Dock has spent time and prepared a plan that takes into account the many different thoughts, opinions, concerns, and frustrations of all families during this pandemic. While it is impossible to please everyone, it is clear the two options you have outlined have the biggest probability of satisfying the majority of your families. Providing two options is so refreshing and I realize this will be much extra work for your staff and teachers...thank you! This will be our oldest child's first year at the school, and we could not be more pleased with our choice of Dock!" ~ Dock Elementary Family
"I am very confident with the decisions that were made by administration, the board and the pandemic team. There are two options—on-campus learning or remote learning for Early Childhood through 12th grade. Thank you Dock administrators, teachers and board members for spending your summer planning for the fall. I know many families from other schools are concerned about the options available to them. Dock has a large facility with a smaller number of students, so safety, academics, and social interactions will not be compromised!" ~ Dock high school parent
