KMAE Team & Family,

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy. Thank you for your patience during this new reality for us all.

KMAE has been working closely with the Shelby County Schools COVID-19 task force as well as our regional and KIPP network leaders to make decisions that prioritize the health and safety of KMAE students, families, and employees. As you all know, we have been in a place of constant change and new information, and I wanted to communicate some information with you about how we’ll be approaching school in August.

As you know, KIPP: Memphis schools will not start in-person instruction until the second quarter, at the earliest; we will be 100% online until October 19th at this point. Here’s what this means for our calendar and back-to-school plan:

ALL students will engage in virtual (online) learning with teacher support and instructional videos August 10th through October 9th (at least).

We will be distributing computers and technology and providing training for families on that technology the week of August 3rd.

Once we are ready to return in person – tentatively scheduled for October 19th – families will still have two options to choose from using the survey below:

Option 1: 100% virtual learning

Option 2: Monday-Thursday in person learning / Friday virtual learning

All students will receive a laptop with WiFi options, and regardless of the format parents select, KMAE’s commitment is that the teacher support and the instructional content will remain consistent, continuous, and high quality. A more detailed plan for all options will be provided prior to the start of the school year.

Please complete the following survey by July 31st indicating the choice for your child once school reopens. (Click the link below.)

KMPS Parent Engagement Survey

Hello Family,

We are happy to announce that we will begin uniform distribution this week. If we have a Uniform Size Order on file for your student, they will be receiving their shirts this week. If we do not have a Uniform Size Order on file for your student, they will be sent home with a Uniform Size Order Sheet to bring to school the following day.

Additionally, the Regional KIPP Memphis office has created a Family and Parent Survey in partnership with individual school Family Engagement Coordinators. This survey is an opportunity for you all to give us feedback and share your experiences with KIPP Memphis. We welcome any and all feedback you feel comfortable sharing with us!

Follow this link (https://forms.gle/mUjGqQvk4eXha3kV7) to take the survey.

Hello Family,

We have gotten a number of questions about when uniform shirts will be distributed. We were expecting a shipment of new shirts early this week, however, that delivery has been delayed. We can expect them within the next two weeks and will notify you all when we have a distribution plan.

Thank you,

Dear KIPP Memphis Families,

As we prepare for the end of the third quarter, we are again reminded of and grateful for your flexibility, patience, and commitment as you partner with us to educate our KIPP students. While recent winter storms and boil orders have prevented us from having in-person learning we are again excited to offer families in-person and virtual learning options for the fourth quarter of the school year.

Please complete a ParentSquare survey to choose which method of learning you prefer for your child: in-person or virtual learning. We have included resources to help you make the best decision for your child, including the KIPP Memphis Family Reopening Guide and our Reopening at a Glance Guide. These resources will provide answers to the most common questions regarding instruction, operations, and safety measures.

The survey is your opportunity to make your voice heard! Please complete this survey even if you selected in-person learning for the 3rd quarter. If we do not receive a response, your child will automatically be enrolled in virtual learning for the 4th quarter.

Please log into ParentSquare and complete the survey by noon on Monday, March 8. If you are unable to complete the survey online, please contact your school's office to notify the school of your choice. After we receive the survey results, we will make an official announcement regarding our return to in-person learning.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are abiding by Shelby County’s Safer At Home directive and will remain in 100% virtual instruction until 1/22/2021. For families who have selected in-person instruction for their children, we plan to resume our school reentry plan on 1/25/2021. Our in-person learners will reenter their school buildings on the following dates:

January 25: Grades Kindergarten through 6th and 9-10
February 8: Grades 7-8 and 11-12

We know this is a difficult time for everyone, and we realize this may create a hardship for families who need childcare. We are exploring options to meet your needs as best we can. Your child will still receive quality instruction, and we will continue to send updates on our reentry plans as they become available. If you have any questions, please contact your school leader.

[12/10/20]   Join us for Lunch and Learn tomorrow at noon. If you did not receive the link for the meeting, email [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you on the virtual screen.

Familias de KIPP Memphis,
Espero que este correo electrónico les encuentre bien. Mientras nos preparamos para regresar a la escuela este año, sigo pensando en lo diferente que es nuestro mundo de lo que cualquiera de nosotros podría haber imaginado. Todos estamos juntos en esta nueva experiencia. Y a pesar de lo inusual que es, les aseguro que nuestro personal de KIPP: Memphis sigue profundamente comprometido a garantizar que sus hijos y nuestra comunidad puedan prosperar en el próximo año.

Hoy escribo con una actualización sobre cómo nos acercaremos a la escuela este otoño. Revise esto cuidadosamente ya que incluye algunos cambios de mi última comunicación. A medida que continuamos revisando la orientación del departamento de salud, el estado, el condado, así como los comentarios de todos ustedes, hemos decidido que las escuelas de KIPP Memphis no comenzarán la instrucción en persona hasta el segundo trimestre. Esto es lo que esto significa para nuestro calendario y plan de regreso a la escuela:

TODOS los estudiantes participarán en el aprendizaje virtual hasta el 9 de octubre (al menos). Seguiremos distribuyendo tecnología y brindando capacitación a las familias sobre esa tecnología la semana del 3 de agosto. Las clases en línea comenzarán el 10 de agosto y seguiremos en línea hasta el primer trimestre.

Una vez que estemos listos para regresar en persona, programado tentativamente para el 19 de octubre, las familias aún tendrán dos opciones para elegir:

Opción 1: aprendizaje 100% virtual
Opción 2: lunes a jueves en persona / viernes virtual

Se pedirá a las familias que seleccionen la opción que elijan dos semanas antes de la fecha de inicio en persona. Actualmente estamos en el proceso de llamar a todas las familias para asegurarnos de que todos entiendan estas opciones. También le haremos algunas preguntas sobre su tecnología y sus necesidades de Internet.

A lo largo del otoño, nos mantendremos al día con la orientación más reciente del departamento de salud, el estado y el condado para que podamos seguir tomando decisiones que satisfagan las necesidades de todos nuestros estudiantes y prioricen la seguridad de todos.
