Families, learn more about our school reopening plan here!

This is our timeline for both CT and RI. For NY, we are still finalizing our exact timeline based on Governor Cuomo’s upcoming announcement (during the first week of August) of whether he’ll reopen schools in NYC. Stay tuned for NY-specific updates.

WhenWhat Happens
7/21 - 7/27Town halls with AF families and staff to get input on 20-21 reopening plans (Note: we’ll share a recording of the town halls w/ staff and families - as well as the survey taken during the session - so that those who are unable to make a session can still weigh in)
7/24Survey feedback deadline for CT/RI staff and families
By 8/3Share final plan via email
Ongoing, ideally by 7/31We ask all staff members who are in need of an accommodation due to their own disability to reach out to their DSO to start the process by July 31st so principals can finalize their staffing plans

If you are a staff member who lives with someone who has an underlying, high-risk health condition that may make them more susceptible to complications as a result of contracting COVID, please complete the request form that Team Talent Ops will send out no later than July 28th. Again we are asking you to submit your request by July 31 so principals can complete their staffing plans.
8/3 - 8/5Families make their selection for whether they’d like to be remote or in-person for September and October (with follow up phone calls to families who do not reply to the survey … goal of 100% selections by Aug 10)
8/10First day of Summer Training for AF Staff
Mid-AugustSchools share specific details with families about school reopening (e.g., instructions for safe arrival, which days the child will attend in-person school, more information on transportation)
