EVSC needs to delay its start date due for the 2020 school year due to the current pandemic. With rising case numbers and uncertainty around covid-19, there is simply no reason to start school so early (August 5). The current reopening plans depend only on proper use of PPE and adequate social distancing, both of which will be challenging to accomplish in a school environment-especially with younger children.

There is no reason to rush our children back to school given the current circumstances. Most school districts start school toward the end of August and many even after Labor Day. EVSC has started school earlier and earlier each year.

Now, in the midst of an active and ever changing pandemic, is the time say enough is enough and push back the start of the school year!
