Phase II Reopening Declaration Data - 53% of Morningside Students Select Virtual Model, 40% In-Person F2F

APS has allowed for choice for parents to send students to MES@Inman for face-to-face instruction starting the second nine weeks of school, if the community spread of COVID-19 continues to decrease.  We have been told that an official announcement regarding this possibility will come from APS District Administration this Friday, October 16th.  
  
If the form was not completed by yesterday October 12th, student(s) will automatically remain in virtual instruction with Morningside.  MES tied for 2nd place with the highest rate of form completion, with 92% declaring their choice!  Way to go parents and guardians!  64 student families did not complete a form, with this additional 7% continuing to remain virtual, for a 60% overall designation for quarter two.  Many of the 64 communicated with their teacher the choice to remain virtual but did not complete the form. 
 
We have shared the specific data below with each grade level of teachers today during our planning day, as well as with other staff as we continue preparations for these second quarter shifts!  I know this was a challenging task - to make a decision for the next quarter without complete information.  However, this data is so helpful for us as we plan for each grade level's continuation of virtual instruction along with the return to MES@Inman.   I am so excited about the possibilities as we move forward!  Here are the numbers below:
