Excitement like the first day of school filled the halls of Sand Hill-Venable Elementary School this week, as the school moved to Plan A for grades K-3 and prepared to welcome fourth-graders to Plan A next week.

“Near the year anniversary of the COVID crisis, we get to come back, celebrate with the children, and finish strong, soaring high with our baby Jets,” said Principal Tyla Moody. “The children are so happy to see each other, the friends they haven’t seen in person for a year. And we’re excited too.”

The school also is making sure remote-only students continue to feel welcomed. Remote-only students continue to work with the same teachers they’ve had since August. They’re included in any schoolwide announcements or activities, like the currently running book fair.

“We want the students to participate in our community no matter where they are,” Ms. Moody said. “We’re very focused on building and maintaining relationships. Together, we’ll finish the year on a high note.”

As decided by the Buncombe County Board of Education on February 25, 2021, students in grades K-3 returned to schools under Plan A on March 8, and grades 4-5 will return on March 15. View the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit (PDF, 1.5MB, Updated March 4, 2021).
