    Radnor Middle School has developed an instructional plan that will continue to, if not better, meet the needs of students. This instructional plan will take effect on Monday, April 27. As a staff, we plan to incorporate and increase both forms of virtual instruction, synchronous (live) and asynchronous (flexible) into our instructional blocks and/or office hours/help sessions.

    For months, we have been planning the annual 5th grade trip to Camp Canadensis. We have now reached a critical point in our preparation. Unfortunately, considering the indefinite closure of all Pennsylvania schools, we are writing to announce the cancellation of this year's trip.

    While the continuation of learning is very important, please know that we feel strongly about our mission to meet the needs of the whole child, with an emphasis on the health, safety, and emotional well-being of our middle school students. On Monday, April 13, Radnor Middle School will trial a flexible period/subject rotation schedule for two weeks. You can view the schedule below. Throughout these two weeks, we will collect feedback from various stakeholders.

    We have selected BigBlueButton (BBB), also known as Schoology Conferences, for teachers to live-stream with students in their classes. BBB aligns well within our Schoology Learning Management System to facilitate teaching and learning. As a district, we are committed to adjusting and improving each week. Should issues arise with BBB and/or Schoology (as we have unfortunately seen this week), we will look to find workarounds or make changes to other platforms.

    Governor Wolf has announced that schools in Pennsylvania will be closed until Thursday, April 9 at a minimum. If schools are allowed to re-open at that time, the Governor has provided two days for schools to prepare on April 7 and 8. As of now we are planning to be on Spring Break that week. Therefore, our first day back would be Monday, April 13. However, this date may change depending on the progression of COVID-19.

    I hope you had some time to take a breather this weekend. As we move into week two of online learning, we have developed plans to provide additional technology to our K-8 students. All high school students already have a Surface Go device.

    Today was my first day working from home. Five of my six kids are here and our 88-year-old aunt lives with us, who we are trying to keep isolated to keep healthy. More than ever, I am aware of the challenges of having all our family members home trying to learn and parents trying to work remotely. Future messages may be from my wife Kathy, since she has offered to go into the office instead of me!

    I hope everyone is well during these unprecedented circumstances. My family is attempting to create some structure that allows for some reading time, play time, outside walks, and chore time. No one is taking to the chore time, including me!

    The Governor of Pennsylvania has closed all schools for a two-week period as the state works to manage the COVID-19 outbreak, resulting in our transition to Level 4: Closing on our Pandemic Action Plan. Currently, schools across the Commonwealth are closed Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27. We are not yet sure if we will be required to make up these days later in the year. Below is the most recent pertinent information we'd like to share with you.

    Today, Gov. Wolf announced the closure of all Pennsylvania schools for the next two weeks, beginning Monday, March 16. Additionally, President Trump has declared a national state of emergency. The earliest we will open is Monday, March 30. I can understand all the questions families might have and recognize the challenges they may now face. Together, as a community and nation, we will come together to prevent the spread of this virus. We will provide you further information for how this impacts us as a school community in the near future.

    All Radnor schools will be closed tomorrow, Friday March 13. Since my email earlier today detailing district postponements and cancelations, Governor Wolf has closed all schools in Montgomery County and encouraged all Montgomery County residents to refrain from all non-essential travel. We border Montgomery County and approximately a quarter of our staff live in Montgomery County. We will use tomorrow as an additional teacher in-service day to develop plans should we have a prolonged closure.
