    Hello Hand Family:

    Welcome to the Phase 2 Re-opening Plan.

    Before I share the details of our transition to the face to face, Phase 2 Hybrid Model, I want to take a moment to recognize those who expand and support our work here at Hand Middle, especially during this time of adjustment and transition.

    To our parents, teachers, staff and administrators who helped and encouraged student engagement during all phases of our learning, I say thank you! Together we are practicing our mission which is “serving every child every day”.

    Now, to our next phase, Phase 2. Students will be assigned to attend school on either Cohort 1 or Cohort 2 attendance day.


    Students assigned to the Cohort 1 attendance group will physically attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays.

    Students assigned to the Cohort 2 attendance group will physically attend school on Thursdays and Fridays.

    Note: Students will participate in remote learning 3 days which are on their “non-face to face day”.


    Students: expected to complete all work assigned, regardless of whether they are working from school or from home.

    Teachers: will provide feedback in a timely manner regarding work done at home, just as they would work completed at school. This will allow students and parents updated information on the progress of their student.

    Trust that we are here for you and your child. Please do not doubt us, because we WILL get through this together.

    In closing, again thank you for all you are doing at this time. I want to share a few lines from “If”, by Rudyard Kipling

    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you… If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, and treat those two imposters just the same…..

    Remember, I am always a phone call or email away…….


    Dr. Patrice T. Green
