Dear DoDEA Americas Parents, Guardians, and Students,
As we get ready for the 2020-2021 school year, I wanted to update you on our Back-to-School efforts. To the maximum extent possible, DoDEA schools will operate brick-and-mortar schools on a regular full-time schedule when installations are in Health Protection Conditions (HPCON) Alpha or Bravo. Additionally, DoDEA is offering a Virtual Learning Option for students in kindergarten through grade 12 for the first semester.
You can find specific information about the upcoming school year at the DoDEA Return to School website. Some of the resources you will find include:
We will continue working with our DoDEA leadership and local military installation commanders to provide the most up-to-date guidance and the way forward in your local community. Please feel free to contact your local school administration with your questions and concerns. Continue to check the DoDEA Return to School website for updates.
Thanks for your ongoing support as we look forward to our upcoming school year of Excellence in Education for Every student, Every day, Everywhere. #WeAreInThisTogether
Dr. Judith Minor
Director of Student Excellence
