It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
COVID-19 has drastically impacted our Ugandan partner schools and the livelihoods of their students. Now that Ugandan schools are indefinitely closed, students are not receiving school lunches and teachers are not receiving pay.The Mwebaza Foundation is hosting a variety of summer fundraisers to alleviate food and income shortages at our partner schools and their surrounding communities. Money raised will purchase meal kits that will be distributed to school families in need. We will also use funds to supplement teacher salaries until schools reopen and provide more scholarships to students whose parents have been affected by COVID-19 restrictions.In recent months, we've become acutely aware that our global community is only as strong as its local villages. We have the capability to help our Ugandan partners make it through these trying times and to provide an improved quality of life, whenever we reach the other side of this pandemic.If you would like to help, please click here to donate.
