Reopening Plan Revised-October 13, 2020
As we work through COVID-19 this school year, we realize the spread of the virus is not occurring at school; however, with our current phase of the reopening plan, the hybrid model is having a negative impact on student academic progress. With our current safety measures and the recently installed additional plexiglass dividers in classrooms, where social distancing could not be maintained, we have reached a higher level of safety. With all of our safety measures and the knowledge that any spread of COVID is not occurring in our schools, we will be changing our reopening plan beginning Monday, October 19th. We will be in the Orange phase of this new plan which has similar protocols to our current Orange phase with one primary change. The revised plan has an Orange phase where all students are present in school Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays where school is scheduled to be in session. Instruction is to continue via AMI-X/ Virtual on Wednesdays. The revised plan is attached to the email sent along with this message and posted on bisonpride.org. The challenge we are facing this year is to find a balance between the safety of our schools and the academic progress of our students.
