EAGLE START 2020-2021
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. Our comprehensive Eagle Start plan has been developed to ensure ZCS students and staff are in the safest possible learning environment. We hope you will take time to familiarize yourself with some of the new procedures being implemented in response to CoVID-19.
Because this remains an evolving situation, ZCS Superintendent Scott Robison will continue to provide updates to the Eagle family about necessary plan adjustments. The goal is to keep you fully informed as we travel this new journey together.
Thank you for choosing the Zionsville Community Schools!
Our core mission is student growth. We are charged with moving forward because lost time, especially for our youngest community members, is a lifelong injury that cannot be recovered. We will move forward educating our community’s youth in welcoming settings, whether in-person or remotely.
ZCS officials, in collaboration with health officials who oversee our operations, will monitor CoVID-19 updates to help guide us through what we know will continue to be a fluid and evolving situation.
The success of our charge to educate young people in ZCS includes the expectation that all Eagle students and parents will help keep our community healthy by following good hygiene practices, engaging in social distancing in school when possible, and wearing masks to protect self and/or others.
There is obviously inherent risk of exposure to CoVID-19 in public places. Thus, we are accommodating, in our charge to educate our community’s children, opportunities for students to learn from home if they and their parents are not able to risk exposure.
WE PROTECT AND UPLIFT OTHERS.
We are a human organization. We invest in people and are committed to implementing processes that protect and uplift others.
Our ZCS culture is built on trust and transparency. As we do in everything, we navigate together. We encourage you to ask questions, share your concerns, communicate openly, take care of yourself and remember that by taking care of yourself, you are taking care of others.
Our Eagle family is built around the idea that people can move mountains when working together. We show empathy and practice compassion. We understand that we are all working in the best interests of our students.
One of the greatest strengths of our organization is our people. We have a proven ability to rise to meet challenges that, under normal circumstances, might feel insurmountable. We are problem-solvers, solution-seekers, and creative leaders who possess an energy and fierce determination to engage in everyday charges that shine a light upon the integrity of our organization.
It is our responsibility to keep ourselves as healthy and safe as possible so as to protect those who have placed their trust in us.
