CATC, as a regional career and technical school servicing eight sending high schools, has coordinated schedules and is very excited to announce that we will be able reopen CATC with all students in-person four days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday).
Note: This is likely different from the hybrid plans that many other schools are developing. CATC is able to effectively manage many of the challenges that are preventing a full opening of many schools. We are not limited by the challenges of lunch, transitions between classes, classroom size, and classroom numbers.
We will be running our regularly scheduled AM and PM sessions. All students will get to be in our classrooms, shops, and kitchens for the extremely valuable hands-on learning that is essential for our programming.
This is exciting, but things will not be business as usual. We will follow all precautions necessary to open safely including face coverings, distancing, and hygiene practices. Things will look and feel a little different, but our four day schedule will help us offer our programming effectively.
We are currently working with all the sending high schools to arrange for transportation from your home to your high school and then from your high school to CATC (and back).
We will be hosting information sessions soon (likely the week of August 17th) to share more details with you.
We are excited to have you back and look forward to seeing you soon.
