School Reopening Information

On Monday, August 17, 2020, the Seaford Board of Education voted to open our schools in a hybrid manner. Please note that those families who selected “100% Remote” on the questionnaire, will start the year as “100% Remote”. The district will work closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health to monitor the amount of community spread that is occurring with Covid-19. Each week, we will analyze these numbers which will help us in our decision making process. We all must do our part in order that employees and students stay healthy. Masks will be worn at all times. The best guidance to stay healthy is to wear a mask and to remain socially distant. Our custodial staff has done a great job acquiring all cleaning and PPE supplies needed for reopening. Our first priority as a district is to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students.

The first day of school for all students, 100% remote and hybrid, will be September 8, 2020. Principals will reach out to all families to share information specific to a child’s school.

For the first marking period, as we instruct students in both 100% remote and hybrid models, the school day hours are as follows:
• Preschool: 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM
• West Seaford Elementary & Blades Elementary: 9:00 AM-2:30 PM
• Fred Douglass Elementary & Central Elementary: 9:15 AM-2:45 PM
• Seaford Middle School: 7:30 AM-1:00 PM
• Seaford High School: 7:30 AM-1:00 PM

We are excited to get the 2020-2021 school year started. Please be on the lookout for more information from your child’s school.

Reopening Family Questionnaire

Greetings Seaford BlueJays,
The Seaford School District is prepared to educate our students with the same high standard we all expect, whether that is done in our physical buildings, or at home through distance learning. BlueJays take care of one another!
For the coming school year each student will be loaned a district owned Chromebook to use for on-line instruction. Students will be held accountable for active engagement during on-line instruction days. Student attendance will also be taken during the on-line sessions. Our district teaching staff will also engage in professional development to ensure they are ready to deliver this type of instruction to our students.
We are launching a questionnaire that is asking which option you prefer for your child(ren). We believe that our students learn best when they can be engaged in the classroom through in-person instruction. However, we know that we must have options available for safety considerations.
Communicate your honest thoughts by participating in our questionnaire located at this link: https://survey.sogosurvey.com/r/tAC6Hv as soon as possible and no later than Friday, August 7th.
These questionnaires are very important for the district. The data obtained from the questionnaires will help us determine bus routes as well as class assignments. Families will decide for how their child will be educated for the first marking period.
We want you to have a voice in this process. We ask each of you to please take the family survey for each of your individual students on the reopening of schools.
