Dear Lower Merion:

The goal is to get all our kids back to school, full time, safely. With that in mind I am writing to request that Lower Merion keep Hybrid as an option. Families and their students should have the option to choose to return to school In-Person Full time, Hybrid, or Flex. To have families choose between In-Person full time or Flex leaves the families who are Hybrid making a choice they may not be comfortable with at this time. While we continue to see cases decrease, and vaccinations continue, not all parents are going to feel comfortable sending their students back In-Person full time. The Hybrid option allows for the student to go in 2 days a week if they are not comfortable with full IP. If this option ceases to exist, students who are not comfortable going IP are now relegated to Flex and spending more time in front of their screens and isolated from their peers. These students may already be successful in Hybrid option and they will now be pushed into Flex due to their comfort level.  I do not see how this can help with the ongoing concerns about the mental health and education of our students.

Please consider 3 options: In-Person Full time, Hybrid and Flex. Families throughout the district have different risk benefit tolerances. Students who want full IP should have the option to do so. Those that are not ready to send their kids back IP full time should have the option for Hybrid or Flex.

Having the 3 options allows everyone to have a fair choice for their kids to return to school in a way that they are comfortable.
