  • Red Clay's Roadmap to Reopening

    Governor Carney announced that all Delaware public and charter schools may reopen in the “yellow” scenario according to the DOE Return to School guidance. School and district leaders, educators, support staff, and other members of the community have been preparing for various scenarios for some time now, knowing all plans are subject to change based on the latest health and safety guidance and recommendations. After much deliberation, consultation and synthesis of state guidance, we have decided to embrace a “safety first” approach to learning this fall. All Red Clay students will start the 2020-21 school year in a remote learning environment for the first six weeks. Our school board recently modified the first day of school to be Tuesday, September 8, 2020, which allows our leaders, staff and educators additional time to prepare for the remote start.
