Good Morning Kestrel Families,

On behalf of the entire Kestrel Staff and Board, we truly hope you are safe and healthy. I wanted to let you know that the Board of Directors voted last night to extend the Hawks at Home Academy through Feb 26 with a planned restart on March 1st.

The Board stated concerns pertaining to community safety and staffing as the reason to reverse their decision to return on Jan 26. The Board wanted to make sure you knew the difficulty in making this decision but the safety and well-being of your family and our staff is the priority.

We will be re-surveying parents about their choice for in-person and virtual in February and reestablish classes. I am not 100% sure of what criteria will be used to re-evaluate the pandemic in February for a March return. But once that is established we will let you know. One hope is that the vaccine would be available for our teachers in February to have a safer return in March.
