    On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the Federal American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) Fund, Public Law 117-2, into law. ARP ESSER provides additional funds to school districts to help safely reopen, sustain the safe operation of schools, and address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation’s students. As a part of this fund, our school must develop a plan for the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services. Therefore, we would like to seek comments from students; families; school and district administrators; teachers; school leaders; school staff, and their unions, and take those comments into account in the development of the plan. Please submit any comments, suggestions or concerns to our director Melissa Benford at mbenford@internationalcs.org or to Nicole Corchado at ncorchado@internationalcs.org. Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring our safe return for the 2021-22 school year!


    El 11 de Marzo 2021 el Presidente Biden firmó el "Federal American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief  (ARP ESSER) Fund, Public Law 117-2.” ARP ESSER es para proveer dinero adicional para que las escuelas puedan abrir de una manera que sea saludable para todos y ayuda con el impacto de COVID-19. Como parte de la ley, nuestra escuela tiene que hacer un plan para que todos pueden regresar a la escuela. Por eso, queremos pedir sugerencias de estudiantes, familias, administradores, maestros, empleados y sus uniones y considerar estas sugerencias cuando hacemos el plan. Por favor manden sus sugerencias, comentarios o preocupaciones a nuestra directora Melissa Benford a mbenford@internationalcs.org o a Nicole Corchado a ncorchado@internationalcs.org. ¡Gracias por su cooperación para asegurar que nuestra escuela abre de una manera segura para todos!
