  Approved Plan And Board Meeting was  Adjourned 8:32 Pm

This is one complete plan with all Phases being approved, so depending on what Phase the State is in will determine what Phase the School is in.  Currently, the state is in Phase II, so if school started tomorrow we would be in Phase II and parents could choose to have their students in school or choose to remote learn from home.  (See Below, Phase II) This is would be four days a week for in school students and Fridays dedicated to online remote learning assessments and check in for weekly progress.  

 St. Ignatius School District #28

Return to School Planning 2020-2021

St. Ignatius Schools are proactively looking at the return to school plans for the fall of the 2020-2021 school year.  We recognize that we don’t know yet what impact Covid-19 will have on our plans for returning students to the building.  We do know that Covid-19 is here and it will not be over anytime soon or ever.  There are no guarantees at this time other than it will be present and at this time there is not vaccine or cure.  With that said we have put together a four plan option below preparing to implement one or all of them as situations unfold.  As a community, we need to be flexible and able to rotate from plan to plan fluently as situations change.  We have surveyed staff and parents to get an idea of where everyone is at and as expected there are many mixed feelings across the board.  We do not want to lose students and we will find a way to serve every student in our district to meet the educational needs of all students. 

 

I. As of July 16, 2020 at 9am Lake County Health:  Lake County: 51 Active, 3 Hospitalized, 0 Deaths. County wants to follow State Directives.

State Stats: 2096 Recorded Cases, 37 Hospitalized (1%)  Deceased 34 (2%) Recovering 1110 (52%) Recovered and released from isolation 915 (45%)

II. Governor’s order for masks exempts schools for the mask order. Lake County Health recommends everyone wears a mask as much and as often as possible.  We have ordered 3,000 masks and Thermal Temperature Readers for all schools.

III. Health Department recommends that students social distance 6’ and if within 6’ for no more than 15 minutes.  So at recess as long as students stay 6’ apart or do not remain within 6’ for 15 minutes they are following the health department recommendation.

IV. If a student is tested positive that student will obviously be quarantined for duration of illness and a minimum of 14 days.   Anyone who was within 6’ of this student for more than 15 minutes will also be quarantined for 14 days and this includes teachers, staff and students.  If the original student comes back negative they can be allowed back in school.  If a student was exposed to a person who tested positive (within 6’ for more that 15 min.) and gets tested and is negative that student is still quarantined for 14 days.  

V.  It takes 2-7 days to get back testing results. 

VI. We will need to move fluidly through situations and be able to adjust as new situations arise. 

VII. There is no cure, there is no vaccine and this will not be over anytime soon or ever. 

 

We have a plan that will allow us to move from phase to phase and be prepared to move from 0 to 3 at any time
