When the decision was made to begin the year remotely Unit 5 said we would make a decision about the 2nd quarter by October 1st.
Since that time, district administration and union leadership have met to discuss the metrics the district will use when making decisions related to COVID moving forward. Additionally, we have shared this plan with the Pandemic Advisory Committee and have made changes based on feedback from this group.
Our goal is to have students return to in-person learning, as long as local metrics allow, while keeping students and staff safe and healthy.
If the metrics remain stable and/or improve we will have students return to school in a hybrid format. We will do so over the course of two weeks so that we can adjust processes, as needed, with fewer students in the buildings.
The following schedule will be used to bring students back to school:
Week of October 19th-23rd: PreK, K-2, 6th, and 9th grades
Week of October 26th-30th: 3-5, 7-8, and 10-12 grades
