2020-2021 Plan Highlights

Our Back to School Plan incorporates a Stoplight approach for keeping schools running smoothly. Our system is based on the colors of a stoplight: Green, Yellow and Red, and will have correlating actions for each color. 


Low to No COVID Spread. 

Students are present in school. 

Students in school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday each week. 

Wednesdays – eLearning/@home learning for students. Deep clean school buildings. Teachers will participate in professional development. (For students in grades K – 6 and who do not have internet service at home, buses will bring students to one on campus location where students can do homework and have lunch. Please contact your school’s office for more information.)


Minimal/Moderate Spread

Reduce students in classrooms.

School will become a hybrid of in school and eLearning/@home learning and placed into two (2) cohorts. 

Cohort A would come to school on Monday and Tuesday with eLearning on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Cohort B would come to school on Thursday and Friday with eLearning on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

For example, a 5th grade class with 20 students will split into Cohort A and Cohort B with 10 students in each group.


Substantial Spread

eLearning/@home learning for all students.
