Planning Forward Task Force


We have assembled a group of stakeholders to prepare and plan for the 2020-2021 school year expecting COVID-19 closures and restrictions.

2020-21 School Opening Scenarios

  • Scenario 1:  We are in Phase 5 and fully reopened in our regular daily schedule with enhanced health and safety measures.  Given the information we are receiving from our medical partners, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and
    the IDPH, we see this as a highly unlikely possibility.
  • Scenario 2: We are in Phase 2 or 3 and remain in a fully remote learning environment (similar to our experience from March 13 to the end of this past school year with DLO).  We have been informed by our medical partners that given the probability of a “second wave” in new coronavirus cases in the fall and winter, in all likelihood we will need to move “in and out” of a remote learning environment at some point during the coming school year.
  • Scenario 3: We are in Phase 4 and reopen with a Blended Learning model (In Person Learning and DLO).  This may consist of a modified schedule, with our students coming to school on alternate days to promote social distancing and other enhanced health and safety procedures.
