Golestan is committed to creating a safe physical space for kids to attend this school year. In the event there is another Shelter in Place, Golestan will transition back to distance learning. Our plan is to be able to accommodate all our students on campus, thanks to an 18,000 square foot campus for just five classes on nearly two acres.
If/when there is another Shelter in Place, we will seamlessly transition to a robust distance learning program which supports learning in the following areas: literacy, math, social studies, cooking, garden, physical education, Arabic/Hebrew/Persian languages and of course, personal connection with friends and teachers. Some of our distance learning includes activities on campus such as gardening, in safe isolation (families sign up so as not to overlap on campus. This gets kids out of the house, moving their bodies, and engaging with nature in meaningful ways that support their academic learning, despite the isolation quarantine imposes on children.
