Good Evening Discovery School Families: We are deep into planning a very complicated reentry for the 2020-21 school year. We value your input to help us with the planning. This pandemic is stressful for families, and it is unprecendented for schools. There is not one easy, right answer or plan. So far, we have heard from slightly over 600 families. That is 1/4th of our school population for 2020-21. Please complete the survey by Tuesday morning so we can use your information in planning for Fall, 2020. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdsgz281AQPMdJQiVHGyS2LxMghxCHLFU8S6yF-Cu99DYsxsg/viewform Stay safe and healthy, Dr. Glaser

Please know the notification may come late in the evening as we have 1,991 applicants. We look forward to seeing and greeting our large pool of applicants each year and apologize for any inconvenience. Discovery is following the advice from JPPSS and the CDC to keep our community safe. After you receive your placement or wait list status, our Admissions Team will be available to answer any questions during the coming weeks.
