Reopening York International School
As the Mapleton Public Schools’ community, we each play an important role in our shared goal to reopen our schools. We know that our public schools are essential to the long-term success of our community and that our schools are environments where students are supported and nurtured while parents and caregivers are at work. Now more than ever, we must work together as partners to provide the best possible experience for Mapleton students. We also know that children’s wellbeing and success depend on more than just schooling. This pandemic has affected every domain of our lives, and, in many cases, it has been traumatic. We recognize that every facet of a child’s life has been disrupted and schools are uniquely placed to provide stability, comfort and security during the months and years to come. Mapleton’s Restart Plan is presented in response to the unexpected closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. This plan provides important information about several specific strategies to assure a safe learning environment for our students and staff. Mapleton Public Schools believes that it is critical for all children to be cherished and protected from harm. We believe that schools, with thoughtful planning and well-implemented proactive measures, can provide an environment where the rewards of attending school outweigh the risks.
